Or at least, that is the way the Fibonacci Sequence describes things. While initially used to describe theoretical mating habits of rabbits, it also describes a kind of magic in the world that is actually not magic at all. (That is how Vi Hart explains it.) It is, in fact, a totally functional way for a plant to make a living on this planet. And while Vi Hart explains it, she draws out her explanation so well it is near impossible not to wish for more. My math class and I were inspired by this video on Khan Academy by Vi Hart, maybe you will be too!
