Nature by Numbers


Something beautiful for a sunday morning.

This is extraordinary animation from Etérea studios which is the work of a single person: Cristóbal Vila.

Note the appearence of the golden mean or golden ratio which is an irrational mathematical constant, approximately 1.6180339887.  It appears everywhere in nature and in art and appears somehow hardwired into our appreciation of beauty.

Wondrous indeed.
