Posts Tagged ‘Fibonacci series’

A year after I wrote the original ‘Why Phi’ post explaining my discovery of the Fibonacci sequence links between solar system orbits and planetary synodic periods here at the Talkshop in 2013, my time and effort got diverted into politics. The majority of ongoing research into this important topic has been furthered by my co-blogger Stuart ‘Oldbrew’ Graham. Over the last eight years he has published many articles here using the ‘Why Phi’ tag looking at various subsystems of planetary and solar interaction periodicities, resonances, and their relationships with well known climatic periodicities such as the De Vries, Hallstatt, Hale and Jose cycles, as well as exoplanetary systems exhibiting the same Fibonacci-resonant arrangements.

Recently, Stuart contacted me with news of a major breakthrough in his investigations. In the space of a few hours spent making his calculator hot, major pieces of the giant jigsaw had all come together and brought ‘the big picture’ into focus. In fact, so much progress has been made that we’re not going to try to put it all into a single post. Instead, we’ll provide an overview here, and follow it up with further articles getting into greater detail.


This post lays the groundwork for a series we will publish over the coming weeks and months. It consists of some of the observations gathered since February when I published my discovery that the Fibonacci series and the Golden Ratio – Phi connect the planetary orbits, the synodic conjunction periods they form with their neighbours, solar cycle periods and cycles found in terrestrial climatic proxy time series. Stuart has done the bulk of the calculator heating work here, with interjected observations, conversations and deliberations with myself.
