In 1981 Shambhala Publications published * The Power of Limits: Proportional Harmonies in Nature, Art and Architecture* by György Dóczi, a Hungarian architect. The book was a near instant success. Its contention rippled through the ether of mysticism and wonder – an iconic “meme” for artists, mathematicians, stock brokers, the counter-culture and inquiring minds seeking a code to health, wealth and happiness.

Dóczi argues that the Fibonacci Sequence – an infinite series of numbers where the next number is found by adding up the two numbers before it – creates a pattern that is seen in nature at all scales.

The pattern geometrically is a “logarithmic spiral, characterized by the golden section’s proportions … and called the pattern of **‘whirling squares.’**” In nature, the nautilus and fiddlehead are the often cited examples of this spiral.

#### The Fibonacci “limit”

Two sections or quantities are in the **Golden Ratio** if their ratio is the same as the ratio of their sum to the larger of the two quantities. This proportion is also defined by the **Golden Mean** or non-repeating number Phi (Φ) = 1.618033988749895…

The paper is run through a desktop printer – front and back – producing a unique marketing promotion for illustrating whatever … for me, the Fibonacci Sequence.
