The following quote by George Dvorsky, published on the website newsletter GIZMODO on 2/20/2013 at 1:16 pm, reflects the basis of the knowledge I use to help my students improve their golf skills.. His examples of the “Fibonacci Sequence” raised the hair on my neck. I felt as if a Pandora’s Box concerning golf instruction was suddenly shut and replaced by the simplicity of a powerfully infinite, universal pattern. Find the article, “Fifteen Uncanny Examples of the Golden Ratio” on line and I believe you will be impressed, especially by example 15 concerning your DNA!
“The famous Fibonacci sequence has captivated mathematicians, artists, designers, and scientists for centuries. Also known as the Golden Ratio, its ubiquity and astounding functionality in nature suggests its importance as a fundamental characteristic of the Universe.The Fibonacci sequence starts like this: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55 and so on forever. Each number is the sum of the two numbers that precede it. It's a simple pattern, but it appears to be a kind of built-in numbering system to the cosmos. Fibonacci came up with the sequence when calculating the ideal expansion pairs of rabbits over the course of one year. Today, its emergent patterns and ratios (phi = 1.61803...) can be seen from the micro scale to the macro scale, and right through to biological systems and inanimate objects. While the Golden Ratio doesn't account for every structure or pattern in the universe, it's certainly a major player.”
