"Gods Fingerprint→ The Fibonacci Sequence - Golden Ratio and The Fractal Nature of Reality "Fibonacci numbers are of interest to biologists and physicists because they are frequently observed in various natural objects and phenomena. The branching patterns in trees and leaves, for example, and the distribution of seeds in a raspberry are based on Fibonacci numbers. A Sanskrit grammarian, Pingala, is credited with the first mention of the sequence of numbers, sometime between the fifth century B.C. and the second or third century A.D. Since Fibonacci introduced the series to Western civilization, it has had a high profile from time to time. Recently, in The Da Vinci Code , for example, the Fibonacci sequence is part of an important clue." http://whatis.techtarget.com/definiti... " from video introduction
A Christian View of Everything
Whether we are open minded enough to allow that Christ is the author of all the sciences or not we must seek to get past our narrow minded bias.
Scientists are no different than anyone else and most often lean into their desires or bias instead of objectivity and research.
Men are not all knowing and even the best researcher or scientist will inevitably fall into a personal bias over and beyond the real facts at some point.
The stalled of quantum mechanics theory via the double-split experiment is the perfect example of science stubbornly refusing to THINK or Explore outside the box they have chosen to remain in.
God (i.e. Christ) brought all things into being. His revelation of his existence is before our eyes yet we in our arrogance and hubris refuse to see. We prefer to try and explain away God with unsubstantiated theories etc.
Theories tend to not have any effect on how we live our lives. We must be pragmatic to live and function yet the reality of our transcendence fills our lives. Many scientists have posited an infinite regress of dependent existences to avoid arriving at the necessary existence of an entity - God. Denial is present in all disciplines! We will try to avoid God by saying that matter is divine and not a real person.
Sadly human history is defined by running away from and replacing God with something else.
Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, the inventor of the calculus, tried to explain that 1+1 = 2 is always the answer because “One and one equals two is an eternal, immutable truth that would be so whether or not there were things to count or people to count them.” Leibniz concluded that are real things that exist in another dimension outside of our physical realm and would exist even if humanity did not exist. Interestingly he refers to another dimension, more on this later.
John Stuart Mill denied the other dimensional existence of numbers and logic. Mill postulated that all that we as humans can know are our own physical sensations( sight, taste, hear, and smell). So even though we take for granted what we see, taste, hear, and smell exist independently of us, we can never know this for sure. he concluded 1 and 2 and + are our sensations, not abstract numbers or anything logical. Because they are sensations, 1 + 1 could equal anything.
American philosopher John Dewey believed the signs/symbols 1 + 1 = 2 do not actually stand for anything but are just useful tools that we have invented to do different types of work.
Bertrand Russell believed that there were not other dimensions with all the numbers in it. Russell concluded that math was a short hand for writing logic. Russell’s view was that logical classes and logical laws, not numbers exist in a dimension outside of the physical realm.
The wall we always run into is these reductionist attempts at explaining what came out of the mind of an infinite intelligence are never ending, inconclusive and inadequate.
The bottom line is SCIENCE can never explain everything.
Yet the beauty of what we were allowed to have a hand in creating is extraordinary!!! - Andy

The Most Beautiful Equation of Math: Euler’s Identity
"In 1988, a Mathematical Intelligencer poll voted Euler’s identity as the most beautiful feat of all of mathematics. In one mystical equation, Euler had merged the most amazing numbers of mathematics:
What??? What are these symbols? What does that mean?
We’ll get there. But first, I want to insist one more time on the spectacular beauty of Euler’s identity. A recent study showed that Euler’s identity is so beautiful that it excites the same areas of the brains as a great piece of music or art would! If you don’t believe me, listen to the amazing William Dunham tell you about that:
I highly recommend you to watch the whole talk of William Dunham on Leonhard Euler’s achievements. It is one of the greatest talk I’ve heard watched!
The Dream Team of Numbers
To fall in love with a story, you need to intimately know its characters. So, before talking about Euler’s identity, let’s draw portraits of the dream team of numbers that makes it up. Starting with the most important of them all, the wau number, as presented below in this awesome video by ViHart:.." from the article: The Most Beautiful Equation of Math: Euler’s Identity

The Number e Explained in Depth for (smart) Dummies
Video from Mathologer
In this follow-up video to his "e to the i pi for dummies" video the Mathologer sets out to properly explain the coolest features of the famous number e and the exponential function e^x. Find out WHY e is irrational, how you go about calculating the first 1,000,000 digits of e, WHY the exponential function e^x is its own derivative, etc.
