Great answer. I couldn't agree more..much evidence exists for spirals and elegant geometry in nature. Fibonacci numbrs/Golden ratio, tiling as studied by Penrose and Mandelbrot sets demonstrate the ubiquitous nature of the spiral. Clearly the universe is imbued with elegance in form and function which shows up across scale...spirals in atom smashing and spirals in galaxies...pine cones, sunflower heads..everywhere and both inside and outside our brains.
