I was kind of hoping for "Donald Duck in Mathemagic Land", but this was also a very enjoyable watch.

Like the music, very attention grabbing. The material in the video is quite bull shit, though. There have been quite a few arguments about the subject, and I apologize this isn't necessarily the best one out there. The golden ratio is great, and relevant in many circumstances. It's pleasing to the eye, there are certain artists who've implemented it (whether on purpose or accident) but saying that it's found all over nature is just ridiculous. There are trillions upon trillions of patterns in nature, only of which an incredibly small amount can be described by using the golden ratio. Of course there are examples of it being found in nature, it'd be near impossible not to.

Amazing. I already knew the correlation between math and nature, but this video is brilliant.

+1 ... great work! Love the part with the golden section and the shell. The CG is great and the integration of math is really well done. Great concept, music was very soothing too.
