You are more beautiful than the Fibonacci sequence ….
Italian mathematician Fibonacci (c.1175-1250) analysed the growth of a population of rabbits based on idealized assumptions. The result was a sequence of numbers which have become known as the Fibonacci sequence.
In the Fibonacci sequence, each number is the sum of the previous two numbers. This sequence is reflected in natural phenomena, such as the spiral arrangement of pine cone seeds and the growth of the internal chambers of the nautilus shell.
The limit of the ratio of consecutive numbers in the Fibonacci sequence is the golden ratio. Some artists consider the golden ratio to be aesthetically pleasing and use it deliberately in their compositions.

“Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty—a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture, without appeal to any part of our weaker nature, without the gorgeous trappings of painting or music, yet sublimely pure, and capable of a stern perfection such as only the greatest art can show.”
