Mathematical poetry through Fibonacci numbers

Mathematical Poetry of the Great Pyramid of Egypt

Mathematical Poetry of the Great Pyramid of Egypt. Words that rhyme have similar sounds with their final syllable. An example is tomato and potato. Yet these words have differences. With the Fibonacci series of numbers, each number is different. Yet, as pictured on the graph below, one square shares a section with another. Looking at the graph, 13 x 13 by itself is unique. So is 21 x 21. Yet they share a border. Rhymes share the same sound. Fibonacci numbers share the same line side on this graph. For example the larger 21  x 21 borders 13 x 13, 5 x 5 and 3 x 3. This becomes mathematical poetry with rhyme.

The series grows by successive addition:

In mathematics, the Fibonacci numbers are the numbers in the following integer sequence, called the Fibonacci sequence, and characterized by the fact that every number after the first two is the sum of the two preceding ones:[1][2]}

The National Museum of Mathematics diagrams the Fibonacci patterns

The sunflower seed pattern used by the National Museum of Mathematics contains many spirals. If you count the spirals in a consistent manner, you will always find a Fibonacci number (0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, …). 

Mathematical Poetry Found at the Great Pyramid of Egypt

A measure of one side of the square base of the Great Pyramid is 440 shorter Egyptian cubits of 1.718… feet. One “Great Cubit” = 55 of the smaller 1.718… cubits. So where are the Fibonacci numbers?

  • The Great Cubit itself is a Fibonacci number as 55 smaller cubits.
  • The 440 cubit length thus becomes 8 Great Cubits. Eight is a smaller number in the series.
  • The truncated height is 5 Great Cubits. It is 275 smaller cubits.  Note- The 5 cubit tip is missing. Five, again, is another Fibonacci number.
  • Here is a most remarkable example. It found its way into the Hebrew language. 21 X 21 (one of the squares above)= 441. There was a traditional leeway of plus or minus one. With letters that also stood for numbers in antiquity, the “one” was called, “colel”. Thus, when you square the 21 Fibonacci number, it is within one cubit of the 440 smaller cubit length of a side. A Biblical adage is “God is truth”. In the Hebrew language the word for “truth” is: Strong’s Hebrew: 571. אֱמֶת (emeth) — firmness, faithfulness, truth.  Look at its 3 letters from right to left: Aleph is the glyph for “1”. Mem is the glyph for “40”. “”Tav” is the glyph for 400. Thus 1 + 40 + 400 = 441.

In a hidden fashion, truth (emeth) is based on square Fibonacci number (21²).  So is the 440 (+1) smaller cubit measure of the Great Pyramid. Questions that come to mind can include (1) Is this a  co-incidence? (2) Was Moses a (440 + 1) link? Whatever your conclusion, keep in mind: 440 is a key hidden number on the traditional 3 x 3 number square. Finally it is time for a poetic revival. I hope my poetry book, available as a product will help. It is called, The Oquaga Spirit Speaks.
