    One of the answers to the topic: Visually stunning math concepts which are easy to explain at Mathematics Stack Exchange.

    I think if you look at this animation and think about it long enough, you’ll understand:

    • Why circles and right-angle triangles and angles are all related
    • Why sine is opposite over hypotenuse and so on
    • Why cosine is simply sine but offset by pi/2 radians

    Phi - The Golden Ratio presents itself everywhere in life, from basic geometry & crystal formations, to plants, planetary ratios and galactic formations. It is the most efficient ratio under near-perfect systems.

  7. High matter, dark language [electronic resource] : the philosophy of Robert Fludd (1574-1637) an exhibition at the Wellcome Institute for the History of Medicine catalogue

    "In the frontispiece to the second treatise of the Utriusque cosmi…historia, which deals exclusively with what Fludd calls the liberal arts (cosmography, astronomy, music, arithmetic, geometry, painting, fortification, engineering geomancy, time-keeping and perspective-drawing) we see the Ape of Nature between the different disciplines he rules. He points to a book on arithmetic, indicating that all these arts and sciences are based on number." (p.7)

    “From my own observations, some of the harmonic overtone partials of A=432hz 12T5 appear to line up to natural patterns and also the resonance of solitons. Solitons need a specific range to form into the realm of density and span from the micro to the macro cosmos. Solitons are not only found in water mechanics, but also in the ion-acoustic breath between electrons and protons.” – Brian T. Collins

  12. A Beginner’s Guide to Construct the Univers

    "Life-forms in general have a three-part structure. From
    the body parts of an insect (so named because it’s “in sections”)
    to the hunian body’s head-torso-legs with their own
    subsequent tripartite subdivisions and the three layers of
    heart muscle, all express the same principle. The geometry
    of fruits and vegetables will be tripartite when they begin as
    three-petaled florniers. Observe before you eat them.” p 47
