### The Fibonacci Sequence

This number sequence was developed by Fibonacci, an Italian mathematician in 1202 when he observed how rabbits reproduced. However, it was not explained until 1993.

The sequence is 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233.... each number equals the sum of the previous two numbers.

It is the key to unlocking the mysteries of God.  The ratio of these numbers is 1.618 or PHI, the divine proportion that makes things appealing to the eye.

The visual balance of phi is used in many Greek architecture, the pyramids, in nature, the human body.  It is the natural dynamics of growth.  Everything is formed with this exact blueprint from the tiny flower to the galaxy.

A plant grows one leaf, then looks at the previous leaf and adds them together (0+1=1); then it looks at where it is now (1 leaf) and adds the previous leaf, the familiar, (1+1=2 leaves); and so on. The plant grows its leaves in this sequence: 1 leaf, 1 leaf, 2 leaves, 3 leaves, 5 leaves and so on.

I also notice this number sequence in my own life.  I get exposed to a new situation and when I am removed from it my nervous system has the freedom to adjust.  The universe gives me something familiar and adds the unfamiliar until it becomes familiar. This has been happening in quick succession which has caused exponential growth where I am constantly in unfamiliar territory with just enough time to adjust.

You learn to ride a bike when you are not riding it after you have been exposed to it. When there is no chance of falling your nervous system makes the necessary adjustments to the motions. When you get on the bike again your body won't be impaired by the nervous system's inabilities because the nervous system will have been upgraded.  The body always knows what to do, it's the nervous system that holds it back.
