Why nature has a lot of application of fibonacci sequence
I mean why the number of spirals in the head of sunflower always has to be a memeber of fibonacci sequence, why pinecones displays similar patterns and many more examples.

Do we really know the answer?
I mean is this question is similar to asking why planets,objects follows Newtons law?
I think answers to all such question can only be given by nature, i think we as a science enthusiast are here to search the answers for how nature describes something instead of why she described it that way, because that's her beauty
What are your views?

I think its the other way around. Planets and objects are generally unaware of Newton.

If you mean by studying nature, I agree.

I'm not sure nature does a lot of describing. Nature provides a lot of examples. It is us that do the describing-- a distinctly human character flaw.:wink:
