The Fibonacci numbers form a continuous sequence defined by the two starting values so that each number is the sum of the two preceding numbers. The best known series starting with [1, 1, 2 …n] runs like this for the first 14 numbers:

1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377...n

If we take the ratio of two successive numbers in the above Fibonacci series and we divide each by the number preceding it, we will find the following series of numbers:

1/1 = 1,   2/1 = 2,   3/2 = 1.5, 5/3 = 1.666..., 8/5 = 1.6, 13/8 = 1.625,  21/13 =1.61538

When we further investigate the ratio of the 14th and the 13th term, 377 / 233, we receive 1.61802575. This decimal value is very close to Phi which is given as 1.6180339… Phi is an unending irrational number.

1.    1.6181802575 / 1.6180339 = 0.99999 = Phi to 99.999%

When we continue increasing the figures in the Fibonacci series the ratio for each successive last pair of figures comes closer and closer to “1.618 034”…without ever actually reaching that value. The Golden Mean (Phi) is a unique ratio ( 1:1.618…) whose reciprocal 0.618034 and square 2.618034 have the same fractional mantissa as the number itself -   i.e. 0.618….Living structures when analysed for the proportion all incorporate Phi. It can also be found in planetary relations.

Vigor Berg introduced the Fibonacci series [296, 296,. … n] in Part III of The Code behind the Maya Long Count (CODE), viewable in the Forum of Charles William Johnson’s websiteThe series is as follows in part:

1     2       3      4         5        6          7         8        9          10            11       12        13

296, 296, 592, 888, 1 480, 2 368, 3 848, 6 216, 10 064, 16 280,   26 344, 42 624, 68 968

The purpose of that essay was an attempt to bring together the Hebrew letter value for the Earth (296) used in the Old Testament with the Holy Greek letter values of the New Testament namely the Greek words for Godhead ( 592), Jesus (888), Christ (1 480), and Jesus-Christ (2 368). The author had a hunch that the biblical words could be connected to the synodic periods of the planet Venus and the sidereal orbits of the planet Jupiter.
