1) The Secret of the Fibonacci Sequence:
One might think that tree branches are just a mess of tangled branches, but that’s not true. There is a pattern in the way the tree branches grow. The branches have a spiral pattern that reaches up into the sky. This spiral is showing the Fibonacci sequence, a mathematical formula called the "divine number" to an 18th-century naturalist Fibonacci. In 1209 in Pisa, Leonardo of Pisano, also known as “Fibonacci”, came up with a numerical sequence. Fibonacci used patterns in ancient Sanskrit poetry from India to make a sequence of numbers starting with zero (0) and one (1) and following the pattern Fn = Fn-1 + Fn-2. The sequence seemed to have mystical powers! Scientists and naturalists have discovered the Fibonacci sequence appearing in many forms in nature. On the oak tree, the Fibonacci fraction is 2/5, which means that the spiral takes five branches to spiral two times around the trunk to complete one pattern.
La Quercia: The Fibonacci’s sequence is a clear example of the complex mathematical rules governing the living processes. For this reason, we are of the opinion that only a comprehensive approach taking into account all the aspects of a human being (biological, psychological, environmental, as well as life history and events) can be of help in understanding its complexity and should be used to develop appropriate therapeutic strategies.
