One Word about Fibol
Fibol is a contraction of Fibonacci Leonardo. This Italian mathematicen(c. 1170 – c. 1250) is well known for a number sequence named after him known as the Fibonacci numbers, which he did not discover but used as an example in the Liber Abaci.
This sequence is the foundation of what the Greek called the “Golden Mean” used to define the proportion of the Parthenon, the shape of playing cards and credit cards and the proportion of the General Assemebly Building at the United Nations in New York. The horizontal members of most Christian crosses separates the vertical member by just about the same number. This sequence is as well the foundation of a perfect spiral (Golden Spiral).
Sequence: 1, 2 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, ….
If you divide any of the fibonacci numbers by the next higher number, as you progress in the sequence you are getting closer of the Golden Mean.
The journalist William Hoffer remarked “The Great golden spiral seems to be nature’s way of building quantity without sacrifying quality.”
If I used this Acronym “Fibol”, it is for the the underlying concept: You can build perfection with volume by leveraging your foundations (5 is the result of 3 and 2). All is a matter of Values you are promoting.
