Fib(n, T): Tn= T(n-1) + T(n-2)
for -∞ > n > ∞

The fingerprint, ear and cloud pics are CHOSEN to fit well.
Can a snail do addition?
Or a plant?
Or is it because Fib(n) is a rough approximation of k.en - a generalised exponential?

Of course the graphics are chosen because they are "best fit", but the spiral is quite ubiquitous through nature.  And yea, that is partly because it reflects exponential growth.  But that is the point here.  Once it begins, life grows this way.  Not always the perfect spiral, but as long as there is energy around it continues to grow.  There will be energy around in surplus in the Universe for quite some time to come.  I expect therefore numerous new spirals will also come into existence.

Just tell Palloy that GOD did it . That always gets a very predictable reaction from him (and most other atheists).

Another Life Spiral


That is DNA from the top down, if you don't recognize it.

RE, remember you need to go slow with Palloy. He has only a limited amount of the following (see below) to make his status quo bias based "arguments". He is trapped in his flawed atheist world view. This causes him to regularly default to innuendo, ridicule and/or sarcasm.
