Expressing Truth – The Logarithmic Spiral – #postaweek2011

Blog

Although I’ve already written my post for the week, I couldn’t help but put some thought into a suggestion the WordPress Daily Post had.  They suggested sharing a photo of something you think expresses truth.  Now, I can’t poetically say why but the first thing I thought of was the nautilus pattern, which is more scientifically explained as a logarithmic spiral.  It’s something I’ve always found peaceful and honest, I suppose.  Interestingly though, in mathematics, a self-similar object is exactly or approximately similar to a part of itself (i.e. the whole has the same shape as one or more of the parts).  That’s pure truth, if you ask me.
