Nice Mathematics / Nature Video


I didn’t realise that the numbers of spirals in multi-spiral life-forms conformed to Fibonacci as well… I thought it was just the pattern.

The more I think about this, the more I suspect that Phi is a simple number to represent in the Arithmetic-Logic Unit equivalent of DNA… so the representation isn’t numerical, it’s geometric or structural… so (for example) if it wants to represent the number 3… it doesn’t use “3”, it uses a triangle.

Probably over-simplification… it may not use a triangle at all… it may actually use the 3 spheres stuck together forming a triangular shape… or not, but whatever – there must be something about Phi that makes it easy for DNA to represent… because it sure ain’t storing it as

and it turns up everywhere. If DNA is using physical geometry as a method of storing or processing numbers, then the esoteric theories about Platonic Solids, and certain aspects of sacred geometry may have some analogue in physical reality.

The reason why I mentioned the idea of 3 being represented not as a triangle, but the intersections of 3 spheres, is because of this

If you’re interested in this stuff, it’s worth taking a cruise around the zen magnet/bucky ball videos on youtube. Some of them are amazing… and they do kindof resonate with (some) physical chemistry/physics at quite a low level.

Wake me up when it’s 2020

Okay, it's 2020 now I guess. [br]I've been making Golden Mean Calipers for about 10 years now. [br]In 2019 I wrote 2 blog posts... that's not enough to achieve the various purposes of writing blog posts, among which are: [br]- to learn what you think [br]- to show people you're still alive [br]- to show google (et al) you're still…

Golden Mean Caliper Comparison Chart

I thought it might be useful for people to be able to compare all the calipers on the one page, so I made a comparison chart.

Demo of Golden Ratio in Artistic Composition (fairly disorganised)

Over the years, I've built up a collection of Golden Ratio Calipers... and I decided it might be quite useful for people if I made a video comparing them. Some of them are really good - some terrible. So I set up my camera... and found that my video-space looked a bit bare... needed a painting. So I decided to…

Why The Golden Ratio Works For Flowers

Fairly amazing video going into the maths of why flowers (and pine-cones, relative leaf positions etc) are so often based fibonacci numbers. And it's fairly amazing because I actually understood it. It's been a loooong time since I tangled with quadratic equations, but (on the 2nd watch) this did actually make sense to me. I always thought that with…

Limited Run : Neon Colour Range I was tinkering with these colours a while back... and then someone with exceptional taste and style made a big order for a whole range of coloured ones... and every one was all "ooh!!!" So I made some for the local art gallery - and they all sold as well. So I made enquiries about getting a lot more…

New Product Videos

I'm putting together a series of product videos... one for each of the 10 or so different calipers that I make. [br]They will all look kindof the same... they're mainly for embedding in shop pages and so on. Because they'll all look kindof the same, I've made a separate youtube channel so subscribers don't lose their minds with boredom.…
