This is a captivating video ‘inspired by numbers, geometry and nature’ and was created by Cristóbal Vila. The video explains the connections between the Fibonacci sequence 1,1,2,3,5,8,13, … (can you see the pattern?), and nature (the golden rectangle, the nautilus, the sunflower, etc.).

For non-math people, you will appreciate this video if you know the concepts behind it.

I came across with this video about two weeks ago, but I had no chance to post it until I was reminded by a post about it at the MathFuture wiki. On the funny side, there were more than 10 thousand who liked the video in Youtube, but 122 disliked it (plus a few more recently). One user (GatorTomKK) had the following comment for those 122 (and possibly for future ‘*dislikers*‘) :

**122 people don’t understand math in general.**

I can’t help but grin after reading the comment, and I’m sure your doing the same.

The movie is beautiful, but most comments at youTube (excluding the negative ones) have nothing to do with it – rather disappointingly.

@Alexander: Yes, I have noticed that also.

I appreciate your continued quest for mathematics however I am unable to view the video

Hi Justus. Just click the link if you are unable to see the video. It’s in Youtube. Maybe it’s the setting in your network.
