The sunflower's pattern reveals seeds occurring in two families of spirals, one winding clockwise and the other counterclockwise and appearing to fit through each other. Amazing! Like 2 vortexes.(like a tornado and DNA pattern).

Different species of sunflowers have different Fibonacci number sequences. The number of spirals are precise, often between 34 clockwise and 55 counterclockwise, to 55 and 89 and even up to 89 and 144. The daisy has a similar but smaller pattern. Pineapples have 8 rows of scales sloping to the left and 13 to the right. Conifers have and 8,5 or a 5,3 arrangement. This shows not a random process, but a purposeful dynamic constraint upon plant development.

The sunflower is a thirsty flower. It consumes 17 times more water in a day, pound for pound, than a human being does. But its thirst is no match for a tree.

The sunflower angles out from the primordia.(the order in which seeds appear, growing from the centre outward). This has been pinned down to be 137½ degrees. Ian Stewart says to appreciate that mathematical significance, take consecutive numbers in the Fibonacci sequence, such as 34 and 55; form the corresponding fraction 34/55 and multiply by 360º.

The result is approximately 222.5º. Now angles can be measured externally or internally and because 222.5º is more than 180º, we should subtract it from 360º, which yields the mysterious 137.5º, the angle mathematicians call the golden angle. If less than this angle occurs, gaps appear in the seed head; if it is more than this then only one family of spirals shows up.

Man and wohumanity too, could take a lesson of efficiency from nature's design.(singles take note; we've seen some of your homes and/or rooms; Ha ha!). The Creator is most efficient.

The golden angle is the only angle where seeds pack without gaps and when they do, both families of spirals simultaneously occur. The most efficient packing, making the most solid and rugged seed head occurs when the divergence angle is equal to the golden angle.

The rate at which new primordia appear are relative to the speed with which they move away from the tip of the growing shoot.(begin to grow or produce; put forth). This can be shown on a bifurcation diagram for spiral numerology, where the vertical axis will correspond to the rate at which new primordia appear.

Ian asks in his book if the role of genes has more to do with affecting the times when primordia emerge, because they certainly don't need to tell the primordia how to space out, this having been looked after by the laws of physics of the Universe, the consequences of universal geometry, geometric design.

The most abundant species on Earth is the orchid, with over 30,000 kinds.(species).of them. They make good house plants, as their bloom, depending on the kind of orchid, can last for months, but be careful if children are around, as some kinds are poisonous.

The.(Coryanthes speciosa).Bucket Orchid flower attracts a species of male euglossine bee.(has a green body). Two special glands in the flower secrete a liquid that drips into the bucket and in the process, producing a fragrance irresistible to this bee. The flower provides the bees with a scented wax which a bee can transfer from their hind leg hairs to special pockets on his hind legs.

Different orchids of this species have different scents, attracting different bees. Some orchid's flowers bloom only for a few days. Occasionally a bee falls into the bucket and making his way out must pass a pollen sac. At a precise moment the pollen disengages from the flower and lodges on the bee's back where the thorax.(the middle one of three main segments of an insect's body).and the abdomen are hinged. It becomes a 'back pack' by the time the bee has climbed out of the flower's tunnel. Then the bee is lured to another orchid.(same species).in order for pollination.(a placing of the yellow male sex cells {pollen} from the stamens of one flower to the pistil of another).to occur. In this second orchid, a catch mechanism on the root of the escape tunnel grabs the pollen backpack.

Self-pollination of a plant is prevented by its specially designed gene. Even when transferred to another plant of the same kind, researchers at Cornell University found the first plant would no longer accept pollen from the other. ...Nature Medicine, volume 5, page 1410.

How did the orchid know the male bee was the pollenator? If evolution be true, which came first, the bee or the plant? One couldn't survive without the other over the years or eons of time evolution was supposed to have been taking place. (the common understanding about evolution is just so much pathetic.conjectural crap!) 

Some orchids attract only specific bees by exuding a fragrance that mimics the scent of the female of the species. Orchids have numerous ways to con pollinators. Even Darwin commented in awe about this in his.The Various Contrivances by Which Orchids Are Fertilized by Insects

Orchids, like many other plants have special relationships.

Many flowers exhibit a Fibonacci mathematical sequence. Lilies have 3 petals, buttercups have 5, delphiniums have 8, marigolds 13, asters 21, with most daisies have either 34, 55 or 89 and these numbers are most regular. The two families of spirals in the sunflower both reveal Fibonacci sequence. 

About 9% of the world's flowering plants.(of which there are about 20,000 species).must be 'buzzed' by bees and then the flowers eject pollen. If Creator-God didn't program this ability into bees to know how to do this to get the pollen, which then came first? 

The bee doesn't even need the pollen. It goes for the nectar and the pollen attaches to it's hairs to be carried to the next flower. 

The more we look, the more the great mind behind it all is seen. The interdependency is absolutely mind boggling! Only a Super Being of such brilliance as to be incomparable in intelligence to anything we could ever have imagined, could possibly put such a fantastic system together.

The.Gaians are discovering more daily regarding a few of the factors necessary to consider in designing such a system; the factors are enormous in number, even in the design of the common dandelion!
