Fibonacci you crazy bastard….

As seen in the solar system (by no ridiculous coincidence), Earth orbits the Sun 8 times in the same period that Venus orbits the Sun 13 times! Drawing a line between Earth & Venus every week results in a spectacular FIVE side symmetry!!

Lets bring up those Fibonacci numbers again: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34..

So if we imagine planets with Fibonacci orbits, do they create Fibonacci symmetries?!

You bet!! Depicted here is a:

  • 2 sided symmetry (5 orbits x 3 orbits)
  • 3 sided symmetry (8 orbits x 5 orbits)
  • sided symmetry (13 orbits x 8 orbits) - like Earth & Venus
  • sided symmetry (21 orbits x 13 orbits)

I wonder if relationships like this exist somewhere in the universe….

For those of us who do not believe in an afterlife, it is a question of how to create meaning in what seems to be a meaningless universe. Life only has the meaning we supply to it. Hold steadfast to humanity and deny nihilism; joy and sanity are impossible without it. If we cease to exist, one must remember that though the battle seems for naught from the perspective of self, there is a continuity in our species, and our legacy is how we leave the world and those we have known in it. In turn, they affect those in their lives. We each contribute to the whole. Every moment cultivates.

Pass enough time and any heartache will dull. The memories collect dust and eventually fall silent, but should a breath of thought, written word, or shared image stir the air around them, the distance of time can evaporate. The past still hurts.

رسم لوحات سريالية على رمال الشاطئ

للفنان لأندريس أمادور

Artist Andres Amador

San Francisco nativeAndres Amador uses a simple rake to create artworks that can span over 100,000 sq. ft (9,290 sq m). His medium of choice? A sandy beach at low tide. This means Andres not only faces a time constraint to complete his work but an understanding that once the tide comes in, his work will wash away forever. To preserve his amazing accomplishments, Andres captures aerial photos of his work from an elevated vantage point or using a quadrocopter

Nobody will protect you from your suffering. You can’t cry it away or eat it away or starve it away or walk it away or punch it away or even therapy it away. It’s just there, and you have to survive it. You have to endure it. You have to live through it and love it and move on and be better for it and run as far as you can in the direction of your best and happiest dreams across the bridge that was built by your own desire to heal.
