Reena’s Exploration Challenge #88

I’ll admit I got distracted when attempting to respond to Reena’s challenge. As I researched the words, magical numbers, I came across articles about the Fibonacci sequence and The Golden Ratio, which is related to magical numbers in nature. These articles reminded me of a post written by the astute, Ali Anani, Ph.D., whom I have the utmost respect for.

Dr. Anani is one of the contributors to, the social media site that I follow and also contribute to. His article (we refer to articles as buzzes in land), including comments from his readers, brings to mind that no matter what one believes in, nature is a major player in our destiny. And yes, I believe there is magic in numbers, but as with human nature and mother nature, there will good times and bad times. And so it goes.

  2. Well done and I agree about nature playing a part in everything. Trees guide me. Hubby didn’t believe me until we were lost and I just magically knew the way. The trees guided me.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend, Eugenia. ♥

  3. 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144… the further out you go, the closer the ratio between two consecutive numbers approaches the Golden Ratio (1.618034). Amazing how everything comes together…

    • Thank you! I find beBee friendly, fun and never a boring moment. Since it is based in Madrid, it has an international flair. There are a lot of good writers that contribute.


  7. Profound! I read it twice to get the link between the two, and the word that remained with me is ‘dice’. How everything in life is a function of this word – decisions we make, risks taken and whatever is termed destiny.
