What's behind the Curtain? Fibonacci Numbers

They say an Italian mathematician Fibonacci first discovered these numbers and described them in his book "Liber Abaci," in 1202. But there was also an Indian Mathematician Pingala who mentioned them in 500 BC. I don't want to start an international incident over this so lets move on.
Fibonacci Numbers occur repetitively throughout nature.
Textism has a fantastic and brief Flash animation on them.

Have a Great day!
