# Fibonacci and the Golden Ratio

## Found throughout Nature and in Rhythmedics

The heart of all Rhythmedics instruments is a patented, precise frequency generator utilizing a quartz crystal vibrating at a Fibonacci number frequency. Fibonacci numbers were discovered by Leonardo of Pisa, Italy and are a number sequence where the previous two numbers are added to create the next number in the sequence; such as 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89 and so on. This number sequence can be seen throughout nature as in the arrangements of seed spirals in a sunflower and the number of petals in many flowers.

As the number sequence continues, the ratio between two adjacent values approaches the Divine Proportion, or Golden Ratio known as Phi (pronounced fee) being the ratio of 1.618 to 1. This ratio also exists throughout nature. It can be seen in the increasing radii of the chambered nautilus and even in the proportions of the human body as illustrated by Leonardo da Vinci in the Vitruvian Man.

More significantly both Fibonacci numbers and the Golden Ratio can be found in the DNA of every cell in our bodies. Jean-Claude Perez discovered a DNA supracode controlling the self-organization of the nucleotide bases Thymine, Cytosine, Adenine and Guanine (T,C,A,G), which make up the steps in the double helix ladder of DNA. He discovered if you consider 144 contiguous nucleobases it results from 55 T bases and 89 C A G bases, all Fibonacci numbers. These resonances extend to the ratios of the Atomic Weights of the Bio-Atoms of Carbon, Oxygen, Nitrogen and Hydrogen that create the nucleotide bases of T C A G, such that the ratios of atomic weights in strands considered to be ‘junk DNA’, that is DNA which could not be translated into genetic information or related to known protein synthesis, were equal to Phi, the Golden Ration of 1.618. Thus, even within the basic building blocks of our bodies Fibonacci number sequences and Phi exists at a primal level. These and other personal insights led to understanding the fundamental frequency from which all subsequent therapeutic frequencies would be derived must be based upon a natural Fibonacci number.

NuTesla’s studies with instruments using different timing bases to determine the validity of this discovery found that study participants using the instruments with a timing base closest to a Fibonacci number reported significantly improved responses, including more restfulness and comfort.
