Found, Day 30

I have never considered myself a math person, but I was completely taken by the Numbers in Nature exhibit we went through at the Museum of Science and Industry last week. The mathematical patterns that were at the center of the exhibit—spiral, Golden Ratio, fractal branching, and Voronoi Patterns—were fascinating. Especially the fractal branching—the comparison of lungs with red coral and lightning bolts—it was just an example but it was  an example exploding with poetry. And today I discovered that if you do an online image search of “Fractal patterns in nature” you will see beautiful things.
