Fibs are used everyday in trading, and it's amazing how often price turns at the golden ratio (.618)

A very good read is, "Is God a Mathematician?" (No, it's not trying to prove God) It asks how—if mathematics is an abstract construction of the human mind—it can so perfectly explain the physical world. Is it part of the fabric of physical reality?

"For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood from His workmanship, so that men are without excuse." Romans 1:20 There is a GOD HIS name is I AM, HE exists in three parts and HE manifested HIMSELF among men to die for the sins of all of mankind, but HE took HIS life up again. Just like the Fibonacci sequence GOD has other laws for life and one law is this: "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23 If you do not believe upon the name of JESUS and turn from your sin, you will die my friend. Experience Eternal Life through the remission of sins by the blood of JESUS. HE shed HIS blood because only HE could pay the debts that HE required. "For GOD so Loved the world, that HE gave HIS only begotten SON, that whosoever believeth in HIM should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16

I live in the US and I ventured into Forex to help my family lead a comfortable life but for a whole year I struggled with no actual meaningful profits, I was at the lowest point in my life my wife almost left me, just at the beginning of this year I came across *Lukka Semenov* who a lot of traders have been praising over the years I decided to give him a try and within these few months I have earned thousands using his *Lukka Binomial Strategy* and I am now able to live in my own house. To get this strategy just carry out a simple google search and get things going.

Aldo Gincarlos (17 days ago)
What i wonder is why do we use a 2 digit value system for 10's why cant it just be a arbitrary single digit expression without altering value to the left? Example 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0θ 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 1θ 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 2θ Anyway this seemingly simple change would alter mathematical results. Maybe the 9 is an after effect of adding one value, one digit to the left. You're cutting into the 10 value with a 1 value. Get it?

Golden Ratio (GR) = (√5 + 1)/2 GR squared = GR + 1. 1/GR = GR - 1.

This is the part math that always intrigues me the most. Everything fits so perfectly! It seems to be necessarily so. Like it can't not be perfect. I want to know why flowers show Fibonacci patterns.

I use Fibonacci for finding breaks in my stock charts as a part of technical analysis. News events may affect stock movement, but absence of news does too. Fibonacci projections and retracements complement MA 50/200 and Bollinger Bands.

dunno, this was kinda mediocre, he still spent most of his time explaining calculation and only made a brief reference to its application in nature. A step in the right direction to be sure but it is going to take a lot more than this to truly inspire people, especially ones not mathematically inclined.

#9 is way more cooler than this 9 times any number reduces back to 9. Its the only # to do that. 9×5=45 (4+5=9) 9x8=72 (7+2=9) 9x14=126 (1+2+6=9) 9x254=2,286(2+2+8+6=18) 1+8=9

Daniel Erhard (1 month ago)
i'm in last year of school, and I always liked maths, but I never had a proper teacher that taught them right. Now in this last year, the headmaster of the school teaches physics and maths to us, and he's a physician and mathematician, and I can see his passion for maths in each lesson. That makes me happy. Last year I decided to study physics next year at university, that's my passion too, so I'm happy that this teacher teaches not only maths and physics, but also logical reasoning and knowledge and I love he is able to transmit his passion as Arthur Benjamin does. Sorry if I didn't write very good ;)

We are genetically programmed to find patterns and seek meaning out of it. Fibonacci as a guidance to aesthetics in nature and design is BULLSHIT.

I actually really enjoy math. Always have since I was 4. I cube numbers up to 47(after this they’re 6 digits) in my head not always super fast but almost always right. Also look up the magic behind number 9

I first got interested in maths about a year ago in 7th grade. During this 1 year I home schooled myself and realized how fun mathematics is. The different concepts, different equations, different difficulties. The more maths I did the more I grew towards it.
Misanthropic69 (2 months ago)
Thats because this supposed 'education' is not really about inculcating any real curiosity within the student/s (it isnt about 'education', at all, LOL). It's mostly just about 'employment skills'. Preparing people for the 'workforce'. This is primarily a product and extantism of the industrial revolution itself. It is necessary for the existence of capital, and its concomitant 'wealth'. If we consider the division of labour and how this specifically relates to industrial and post-industrial society, we can see why most people would not take anything more than a superficial interest in mathematics because of the 'necessity' of the contemporary division of labour(since politico-economists only care about 'efficiency' primarily as it relates to personal and collective profit, and production itself).

These numbers are Hemachandra numbers.... Hemachandra from India discovered these numbers and the underlying mathematics much much before Fibonacci...
