Come and see the Romanesco...
...No, no... come closer...
Even closer, and look into the middle...
See the Romanesco forming? Isn't that absolutely stunning?
Have a look at this video and marvel at the beauty of our mathematically perfect creation.
The Golden Mean Spiral can be seen in my Romanesco.
It is seen in sunflower seed formations; the petals of flowers; and in sea shells.
It is now known that even the spiral of the galaxies are in proportion to this ratio.
What wondrous expressions these are of the infinite beauty that is in the One who is 'altogether lovely'. And they ought to make us fall down and worship the One who is worthy of all praise and honour.
The more we learn about this awesome creation, the more glimpses we get into the infinite majesty, wisdom, and power of the Creator. I don't know about you, but it makes my heart sing these words:
O Lord my God! when I in awesome wonder Consider all the works Thy hand hath made I see the stars, I hear the mighty thunder Thy power throughout the universe displayed Then sings my soul, my Saviour God to Thee How great Thou art! How great Thou art! Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee How great Thou art! How great Thou art! When through the woods and forest glades I wander And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur And hear the brook, and feel the gentle breeze And when I think that God His Son not sparing Sent Him to die-I scarce can take it in That on the cross my burden gladly bearing He bled and died to take away my sin When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation And take me home-what joy shall fill my heart! Then shall I bow in humble adoration And there proclaim, my God, how great Thou art!
