Love the video. Hate the lesson.

I had seen plenty of disproving examples and came up with these two good ones looking on Google for a few seconds.

Great music and videography, but some of the concepts don't actually relate to phi. See the wiki article and its citations.

"The nautilus shell is often cited [as a manifestation of phi]... but sometimes with the claim that each new chamber is proportioned by the golden ratio relative to the previous one; however, measurements of nautilus shells do not support this claim."
