The movie Nature by Numbers created by EtÃ©rea [etereaestudios.com] is a beautifully illustrated animation focusing on remarkable geometrical and mathematical properties, which range from the Fibonacci numbers over the Golden Angle and Ratio, to the Delaunay triangulation (more detailed information about all these can be found here).

This video is beautiful!! Congratulations!! Nature is so wonderful....!!

i love what you did with this concept and the video.

Beautiful.

I was explaining to my son how math is everywhere not 2 days ago! I will show him this video.

Thank you so much.

your visualization of the golden mean and the Fibonacci series is just AMAZING!....the links are amazing! and so is the music..

I feel like I'm the odd one out, here. I don't find fascination in numbers AT ALL. It was a very well made video, excellent graphics. Seeing patterns in nature, to me, is like a meaningless pursuit. Nature is beautiful because it's nature, not because it's mathematical. I guess some people appreciate nature in a more abstract way...

Devon,

I was just wondering if you have ever heard of the "Golden Ratio" and the "Fibonacci Number Sequence". All the scenes in the movie depict how nature uses these mathematical concepts. It is not a meaningless pursuit to see these patterns in nature, for example, it is inherently present in how sunflower seeds are scattered on a flower. The golden ratio ensures the most efficient use of area to scatter the seeds, giving the flower much more eficiency to populate its surface area with them.

Mother Nature is a methematician...

Only natural numbers occuring. Except the golden. But it is the most noble of all.

Holy wow. I'm familiar with the basics of some of these equations.... but damn. The KNOWLEDGE!

Also what's the song?

I'm bothered by that image - that's supposed to be the Fibonacci sequence, right? So why is there a 9 in it? >.

Also, the faded numbers below show a 3 after an 8, which should be 13.

Is this the full movie or just a trailer?

If so, where can i buy or watch the full version?

Is really great!

@Kevin

I see no 9 but i think the three was probably an animation mistake.

@Carson, the song details are in the movie itself - "Often a Bird" by Wim Mertens - http://www.wimmertens.be/

I still like Mathmagic land better

This video is awesome! First thing that popped into my head when I watched it was the Divine Code I read about in the Divinci Code. Makes perfect sense!

Math is an illusion.

I love Maths,I just wish I could do it!

The video was great aswell.

Who needs god when you have math?

The next step is convincing you it is all because of intelligent design by the big mathematician in the sky. There is nothing intelligent about these designs. It is due to the efficiency of nature. Patterns occur purely by chance and that is all there is to it. Simple... elegant...

I really enjoyed this video and am fascinated by the time and effort it took to create it. I was taught that in historical times that artists who excelled at math would use math in their work as an expression of the divine and or perfection.

Feynman put it perfectly..."To those who do not know mathematics it is difficult to get across a real feeling as to the beauty, the deepest beauty, of nature ... If you want to learn about nature, to appreciate nature, it is necessary to understand the language that she speaks in."

He also said, "Physics is to math what sex is to masturbation."

@ Pieter, Ah yes... another atheist trying to make sure no one sees the perfection of nature connected to an intelligent creator. Anyone who thinks the mind boggling perfect rules of physics and the universe around us was created by "chance" is truly blind. My wrist watch would never randomly assemble itself if I left the parts floating in zero gravity.
