Historical Perspective of Fibonacci, the Golden Ratio and Implications

in the Natural word extended and hypothesized to current works regarding the

Entanglement Theory.

The man to whom we owe such a wondrous start to this odyssey: Mr.

Fibonacci hailed from Italy in the 12th century. Fortuitous for us too was the

inference that his father was a traveler and thus Fibonacci was able to learn

about the Hindu Arabic numbers. (1) He traveled much himself later and learned

more and more and resultant of this he wrote the Liber Abaci a book about using

the abacus. I owned one as child and it actually works although I was so young

I had no predisposed inhibitions about mathematics then. Today the device

frightens me.

Due to this work and mathematics of that style coming to Europe he was

patronized by leaders and paid for his research and government work. His early

work made the use of 0-9 a standard and introduced place holding additionally.

The Fibonacci sequence, however was postulated in this work and took a

look at how many rabbits can be reproduced via a population in hypothetical

terms at first. This postulation was as the generations went on in the rabbit

population was seen and bore out a sequence. The mathematics will be discussed

in the mathematics section of the paper later.

Briefly though it’s a sequence with number succeeding as a sum of the

previous two. In the Fibonacci sequence of numbers, each number is the sum of

the previous two numbers. At this point though he did not really get into the

PHI aspect of the numbers. This is implied when extrapolated as two amounts are

in the golden ratio if their ratio is the same as the ratio of their sum of the

larger of the two numbers.

Many of our world’s best-known math folks; inclusive of Euclid and

Pythagoras and leading all the way to my previous accolade for Leonardo

Fibonacci; have for eons now been taking a look and spending great effort on

this ration. Of course, we must also realize this fascination has transcended

virtually all aspects of the human expression and fields of study.

Historically as expressed in sequence: Phidias used it in the Parthenon.

Plato writes of geometric figures having the ratio. Euclid as described prior.

Fibonacci and his sequence when extrapolated into the ratio show the ration. Piccioli

calls the proportion divine. Maestlin shows its inverse properties. Kepler

combines this ratio with the Pythagorean theorem to the Kepler triangle. How

nice he names it after himself. IN the natural realm Bonnet shows us in the

spirals of plants the sequence exists from Fibonacci. Lucas calls it by its

name. Barr PHI. Bonnets proposal is

further extrapolated to the helix pattern, celestial orbits, atomic particulate

orbits. With that as a possibility of enhances transference of information

though some divine or innate science nature of natural word; I began looking at

the DNA helix as an extension of and inherently patterned via the golden ratio

as are celestial l rotations, and tiny atomic orbits too. This caused be to

postulate there may be a link between this and the manner by which a new field

of quantum mechanics may be coming into fruition via the entanglement theory or

as I called it the comingling theory, so I could better understand it. This

class has open a whole new way of seeing the natural world though mathematics

and has caused me to see there may be a link between the building pyramidaical

ideas of the past to connect with the vanguard ideas of the future.

With that as my basis I began looking at the pattern in nature not just

as a given but I began wo ponder the reason so many supposedly naturally

occurring patterns and structures in nature held the influence of this

Fibonacci extended golden ration resultant. I was especially intrigued by the

notion that the DNA helix and celestial bodies orbits inferred this

measurement. My explorations of the research became extremely tangential in

nature and began to border on the metaphysical in

addition to the mainstream science as we know it today.

This led to further questions that I began to self-produce through long

introspection and reflection. Does this exploration require a choice between

spirituality and science? Or for that matter between metaphysics and science?

Having read the subliminally suggestive sayings delicately sprinkled

strategically within our text book; such as to be no afraid to speculate about

things unknown, etc. I began to look at the historical scientific record

regarding the philosophy about randomness in science, mathematics, and theoretical

physics. I wondered if the axiomatic saying that we ought to just take a proven

theory at its face value or not. And if we don’t do so; are we bound to end up

in the asylum for being shunned by our peers as Canter was? Should we look at

the experiment and the ensuing theory as to the improbability of looking at

such a condition as the seeming innate Golden Ratio as a casual evolution. As a

harmonious pre-established order.

If this is not necessarily the case and it does or does not infer a

divine design, then could it hold a more mysterious implication for us? After

all, there was a time when something as elementary as electricity was still

unknown, when radio waves were not heard but still existed, when a cell phone

did not exist! For me the possibility of

a mathematical implication quantifiable for this pattern in nature seems both wondrous

and troubling in that I am placed contestably off balance not fully

understanding the causal basis for such a property. I myself am not inclined to

give up determinism in the world of atoms. Although I easily could see a

scientific explanation or a divine design too and either of the above also. But

that is a philosophical question for which physical arguments alone are not

decisive. With that in mind; I took a close look at the arguments of Cantor and

infinity. He didn’t get in trouble for his ideas the was just so discouraged

from lack of support that he became disillusioned and depressed. I shan’t not

do that here. One-to-one correspondence should be elementary today as it is. Or

should it be necessarily? Gödel; in turn proved that we could not disprove the Continuum

Hypothesis. Then we found out that Cohen showed us we could not prove it

either?! (Burger P. 184). (3)

To further indicate that there

are more hidden variables and distinct gaps in the ability of our simian brains

to comprehend new and uncanny though as we have been either hard wired to not

allow for contradictions or we just are not yet versed in the basic principles

to leap forward. Perhaps some of us folks who take Mathematics 135 have not yet

been tainted in such as way and cautionary; we are just to naive to really understand

some things just can’t be. Further complicating this are excerpted form our

text such as: It turns out that the set of points of line S has the same

cardinality as the set of points of line B.(3) (page 193) Berger. Thanks to Canter, who reached out and

considered the counterintuitive, no mathematician today has a problem

encompassing the idea of multiple infinities. (Berger Chapter 3.1 Text). Could there be more to infinity in that DNA

and or atomic particles can provide more than physical communication with the

determination of the next offspring and do atomic particles harbor a hidden

manner in which hey can communicate uninhibited by space and time? And If so

can DNA connect us with our past ancestors and future descendants in more than

just a sequence of information as they’re essentially made up of atomic

particles too?

It could then be reasonably referred to as

not only the golden ration but as the golden egg. Geometry uses it to figure out relationships

in figures and lines ratios. Euclid’s golden ration was expressed as thusly: “A

straight line is said to have been equal when, as the whole line is to the

greater segment, so is the greater to the lesser. Mathematicians first studied

what we now call the golden ratio because of its frequent appearance in nature

and DNA.” (4)

With those issues at stake I then stumbled

upon the impetus for my leap into the later discussed quantum physics realm. To

wit; the text stated this: First, we notice that we will not change the

cardinality of the line segment S if we bend it a little bit. We would be

changing its shape, but not its cardinality (Burger 193). If that is then in

this also if I look at Fibonacci and the golden ratio being everywhere and

fundamentally independently embraces by so many fields of study and by natural

design and functionality what else in this might be a hidden variable?

This in mathematically applied and

extrapolated physics the theories regarding hidden variables were touted and

proposed by some that said something that exists within the set parameters of

the theory do not necessarily account for all the dynamics of the existence nor

for quantum mechanics for that matter. This even according to Albert Einstein for

that matter. He even said that is not always the case can that there may be far

more to the mechanics of this view then we can imagine as yet. Rosen, Einstein, and Podolsk postulated the

other things may come into play here.

These hidden variables or “elements of reality” (hidden

variables) would be prudently mingled with the overall theory to make sense of

this entanglement theory. I found this theory to be a natural world extension

to the Fibonacci sequence as found in nature. This in the most expansive realm

of space and as minute as the deoxyribonucleic acid might be useful to the theories

so we can better understand quantum mechanics and entanglement and action at a

distance even (5)(6). Within this further dance of the Fibonacci sequence and

the following golden ratio as seen in nature I stumbled upon the possibility of

a correlation between the transference of beauty in nature and deoxyribonucleic

acid information for living organisms into a study of its possible explanation

for and a divine intervention or design or natural explanation for later,

suggested that of certain types are impossible, or that they evolve

non-locally.

Einstein, being the humanist and realist that he began looking into and

spread the idea that there might be a paradox called the EPR that his theory

was not an end all nor that it was necessarily complete. The remarked that,

“God does not play dice.” (5) The theory of quantum entanglement that discusses

that possibility in that separated particles can briefly share common

properties and respond to certain types of measurement as if they were a single

particle. In this observed experiment and hypothesis, a seen and observed

measuring of one particle in a place can change how likely the results of a

measuring of another one elsewhere. If both then are observed in different

location to have similar stimulation then, then local hidden variables can

reasonably be ruled out.

Quantum mechanics is very much a natural tangent worthy of exploration

of this way of searching for the possible explanation of why this ratio is so prevalent. An inner voice tells me that this could be a

profound endeavor, but if it proves fruitless at least it may open another door

or further understanding. Axiomatically and historically this lens leads me to

the comment by Einstein that God does not play dice. Others told him not to tell

God what to do; most humorously. Shortly

after making his famous “God does not play dice” comment, Einstein

attempted to formulate a deterministic counterproposal to quantum mechanics,

presenting a paper at a meeting of the scientific society in Berlin, on 5

May 1927, entitled “Bestimmt Schrödinger’s

Wellenmechanik die Bewegung eines Systems vollständig oder nur im Sinne der Statistik?” (8)They spoke

of natural phenomena and nature’s occurrences such as the golden ratio. However, as the paper was being prepared for

publication in the academy’s journal, Einstein decided to withdraw it, possibly

because he discovered that, contrary to his intention, it implied chaos of

systems, which he regarded as absurd. Even he had trouble with outlandish

contradictions of conventionality. This was followed as a natural extension by

the Bell Theorem 1964, which exclude some classes of hidden variable theories

were first discussed by Albert Einstein further that: No physical theory of

local hidden variables all of the predictions of quantum mechanics. shortly

thereafter published a seminal paper defining and discussing the notion of “étranglement”. Einstein later famously derided

entanglement as “spukhafte Fernwirkung” or “spooky action at a

distance”. In 1935, Einstein returned

to the question of quantum mechanics. He considered how a measurement on one of

two entangled particles would affect the other. He noted, along with his

collaborators, that by performing different measurements on the distant

particle, either of position or momentum, different properties of the entangled

partner could be discovered without disturbing it in any way. then used a

hypothesis of local realism that the other particle had these properties

already determined. The principle he proposed is that if it is possible to

determine what the answer to a position or momentum measurement would be,

without in any way disturbing the particle, then the particle actually has

values of position or momentum. (9) This principle distilled the essence of

Einstein’s objection to quantum mechanics. As a physical principle, it was

shown to be incorrect when the Aspect experiment 1982 confirmed Bells’ Theorem

had been promulgated in 1964. (6)
