It’s a place full of wonder, strangeness and bizarre beauty: the room – or should I say space – of a “mathematician that’s merely a magician.

It’s a common optical illusion, a kind of tricky paradox. “If our brains are simple enough for us to understand them, then we’d be so simple that we couldn’t.” ~ Quote by Ian Steward (a mathematician)

The floor itself is an impossible figure – a typical symbol for paradoxes…

The spirals on the checkerboard-floor are Fibonacci spirals.

This drawing is mostly about the beauty of Phi Φ, Psi ψ and the Fibonacci-sequence.

**The fibonacci sequence**

The fibonacci sequence works this way:

1+1 = 2

1+2 = 3

2+3 = 5

3+5 = 8

5+8 = 13

8+13 = 21

13+21 = 34

21+34 = 55

34+55 = 89

55+89…

… and so on…

The sequence then is: 1;1;2;3;5;8;13;21;34;55;89;…….

Let’s play with these numbers!

1/1=1

2/1=2

3/2=1.5
