The Universe could be a Mystery,
But it really is No Secret

Michael Schneider leads us on a remarkable, lavishly illustrated trip alongside the numbers one via ten to discover the mathematical rules made obvious in plants, shells, crystals, vegetation, and the human physique, expressed within the symbolic language of people sayings and fairy stories, delusion and faith, artwork and structure. this can be a new view of arithmetic, now not the single we discovered in class yet a complete consultant to the styles that recur throughout the universe and underlie human affairs. A Beginner's advisor to developing, the Universe indicates you:

  • Why cans, pizza, and manhole covers are round.

  • Why one and were not thought of numbers by way of the traditional Greeks.

  • Why squares appear so usually in goddess paintings and board games.

  • What estate makes the spiral the main common form in nature, from embryos and hair curls to hurricanes and galaxies.

  • How the human physique stocks the layout of a bean plant and the sun method.

  • How a snowflake is like Stonehenge, and a beehive like a calendar.

  • How our ten hands carry the secrets and techniques of either a lobster and a cathedral.

  • And even more.
