    Ok, so the Fibonacci numbers (Note that the real origin of this pattern can be traced to ancient India) are a subset that kinda goes like this

    0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,etc

    1+1=2
    __1+2=3
    ____2+3=5
    ______3+5=8
    ________5+8=13
    __________8+13=21


    On and on.

    So in one of my poems I created a verse based off the Fibonacci numbers.


    So the syllables go:

    1
    1
    2
    3
    5
    8
    5
    3
    2
    1
    1

    Although, could start anywhere in the sequence such as

    1
    2
    3
    5
    3
    2
    1

    or

    2
    3
    5
    8
    5
    3
    2



    You don't actually have to ascend/descend either. Curious if anyone is willing to give it a go!

    I search on
    To eternity
    To the end of everything
    When the skies crash and empty streets are torn asunder
    I never find what I look for; that speck among the grains of sand that eludes all time.
    I digress to the fate of time which pulls me onward
    Surrender to the will of man
    Where else can I turn?
    I surge on

    I am lost
    Still, I search in vain
    Forever

    I
    am
    waiting.
    Waiting and
    Thinking. For what or
    about what I do not know. But
    Perhaps it will come
    clear while I
    sit and
    wait.

    not poetic. more stream of consciousness. i'll have to try again later.

    Yea, Tool did it in one of their songs, I am sure Bach has it somewhere too.

    I want to hear the lyrics spoken sometime to hear how they sound rolling off the tongue to a beat.

    Breathing deeply inwards,
    I roll my twenty,
    try to grapple,
    and stab you
    in the
    eye.
    Or else
    fail the check
    and take damage
    done by the attack
    of opportunity.

    Meh. All I could come up with for now. Excellent idea.

    Reading the Count of Monte Cristo which inspired this.

    Do not underestimate me
    You fear what can never be seen
    In the shadows I watch, waiting
    Patiently biding my time, fire never abating
    Soon your time will come, my naive unsuspecting friend
    Our pasts have intertwined to one
    Today, I pluck all the loose strings
    Very soon you shall meet your end.

    8-8-8-13-13-8-8-8

    The above sequence can be sumarized with 3-2-3.

    the
    clouds
    are still
    here in june
    a wet blanket for
    the usual exuberance
    of summer's approach
    i must trust
    the sun
    will
    come

    thank you for sharing this. it was fun and i may try more. i like the idea of the fibonacci sequence in the natural world. how nature has a pattern but it expresses itself in such individual ways..

    Yea, it is pretty amazing. Fractals in general are all over the place and learning about them blows my mind!

    In essence the musical scale is a fractal due to the logarithmic nature and self-similarities between octaves. However, it is not infinite because our ears only perceive a limited section of that set.

    1.6180339887 ([1+√5]/2 or [1+2.23606798]/2 or 3.23606798/2) is the golden ratio and is the number that calculates the fibonacci proportion. As you advance in the fibonacci sequence, each proportion comes closer and closer to matching 1.6180339887 times the last number repeating on and on. That number is represented by the greek letter phi (uppercase Φ, lowercase φ or math symbol ϕ)

    1.05946309435929 (12th root of 2 or 2^[1/12] or 2^0.0833333333)is the number associated to 12 step equal tempered tuning and is the proportion in which the frequency of a string increases to reach the next half-step. So Concert A with a frequency of 440 Hz times 1.05946309435929 would produce the next note up the scale which would be approximately 466.1368 Hz, otherwise known as A sharp.

    So in the fibonacci sequence, each increase in proportion is self-similar to the last and to the next. Same with octaves in music.

    Flames breathing life;
    Death scoffs;
    Mercy!

    The hour approaches
    We shall soon meet our chosen fate
    Hold my hand, I will protect you
    I will give you a reason to escape from all this
    Just give me a kiss so that I know this is all real
    Nothing else matters if we are together, just be.

    I took a few liberties with this (mainly at the end), but I like it.

    I
    run
    through the
    woods of night.
    I'm weaving between
    the trees and the bramble and thorns
    I leap o'er the rivers and streams, nible as deer.
    I hear a rustling far away.
    It comes nearer here.
    I find m'self
    running
    with,
    at my side,
    A mighty stag.
    We are running together.
    We begin to acend a mighty mountain,
    and the sun begins to rise.
    We reach the top,
    and we leap
    into
    the
    sky.
