Cosmosis Pine Cone – The Fibonacci Sequence in the Pine Cone
The Fibonacci sequence can be found everywhere in nature, it is Life’s grand numbering system. Before I found myself involved with sacred geometry, I had never before recognized the Fibonacci sequence in anything! When I reflect upon how I used to see it as only a living conscious being, I realize how I never really saw the sequence of pattern in the structure.
It can be said that all things in life from plants to the bee’s creating a hive don’t know about this sequence but I like to think that everything actually does. All of creation in this world and outside of it is made by some intelligent design, however you want to call it something spectacular has taken place here and has been since the emergence of everything.
With that said we live in a reality that’s constantly growing and in order for growth everything needs awareness. Plants are just aware of themselves as the bee’s are when building their hive. They may not have a central brain system as intricate as ours and that’s because for what they are they don’t need to. They make do with what they’re capable of being and creating for the order of things. Certainly there is some code embedded into everything and it all works in the same way no matter how independent one thing can be from another.
If everything in life follows the fibonacci sequence then there was an awareness “code” pre-programmed into the all. The plants and the bee’s are aware with a sort of organic intelligence as the same goes for us. Anything living has a sense of itself, it’s other selves and the environment. It’s essential for survival and growth.
Take for instance the scales of the pine cone. From looking at it’s bottom there is an array of scales spiraling out from it’s center and all the way up to the top of it. The pine cone is like an organic pod full of pine tree seeds. In order to ensure the ever continual life cycle of the great pines the cones are packed with a lot of seeds! When it’s time to sow the pine cone will start to open up and however the seeds may fall or burst out of the cone they find themselves into the soil and when the proper conditions for growth happen pine trees start to emerge. It’s cyclical and as for now never ending.
The way the pine cone is designed with the fibonacci pattern comes natural yet specific for it’s process in the service to propagate. It’s the best design for it and how it distributes the seeds. Earlier I mentioned that “in order to grow everything needs awareness” and this applies to the pine tree. The pine tree is aware to repopulate and within the function of the pine cone this is how it grows. There is an intelligence at play. Awareness = Growth.
I’d like to now get into my second pointillism art piece that’s based off the pine cone design. The inspiration for the Cosmosis Pine Cone came about when I was outside and picked up a cone. While looking at it I visualized the center a sort of eye as a central consciousness for itself not separate of the tree it fell from. Within each scale that holds the seeds were another set of individual consciousnesses of the tree that that make it all one. Whichever seeds are to grow is part of the life fractal system of the pine tree ever growing and continuing it’s journey. It’s just as simple as that and why I created this piece as gratitude to the pine tree for everything it is. I’ve always felt deeply connected to the pines and find them to be a very wisdomis tree, surviving on this earth for what’s claimed to be 140 million years! They were around when the dinosaurs roamed this plant, of course among other trees too but when I look at the pine itself I feel within a knowing that it’s an ancient spirit here with us.
I hope you enjoyed this article as well my Cosmosis Pine Cone. If this at all has sparked your interest in learning more about sacred geometry, fibonacci and even the pines or even wanting to try out pointillism I highly encourage you to start learning & creating!
