The Perfect Nautilus

I saw this Nautilus shell on the table of a vendor at the Wednesday Market in Cascias. The man had several crystals and agates and shells. Having recently written about the Golden Ratio, this shell took my attention, as it is the perfect expression of just that.

This weird creature has existed with very little change for millions of years. It’s chambers grow by 1.08 each time to create its shell body. The flesh body of the Nautilus moves into the new chamber as each new room is ready.

The Nautilus holds the blueprint of civilization, the creative expression of humankind, and it has your artistic back. Take a moment to acknowledge the perfection of the Nautilus.

Here is a 2-minute BBC video that talks about nautilus math.
