Fibonacci Nightmare

FIBONACCI SEQUENCE: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, …

Well, I did it. I started fooling around with Fibonacci numbers and I scared myself half to death. Leonardo Fibonacci, was perhaps the greatest mathematician of the Middle Ages. I pried open his seven hundred year old crypt, dusted him off and asked him his specialty … a question about the future. The question I posed, “Are we headed for inflation or deflation in 2009?” I was stunned by the clarity of his answer. This Einstein of his day warned, inflation of nightmare proportions and worse, is coming to this nation soon.

He does it through his Fibonacci sequence of course. A segment of which looks like this: 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34 … You add the last two numbers to get the next number in the sequence. No one knows why, but this number sequence echoes the rhythms of nature. Look at the petals on flowers. There are 3, 5, 8, 13, even 21 (daisies). Exceptions are rare. This is why four leaf clovers are good luck, you can find one, but it will take you all day. Look at you elbow and your knee cap. They are located .618% up the length of your extremity. You get .618 every time you divide any number in Fibonacci’s sequence by it larger neighbor. 144 ÷ 233 = .618. I always hated math, now … not so much.

As to the question at hand, we have had two periods of hyperinflation in America. The first period was dur­ing the Revolutionary War (not worth a Continental). The second was during the Civil War (greenbacks and graybacks). With 1776 as an obvious starting point, I leapt forward to 2009 and got a Fibonacci 233 years. The Civil War ended in 1865. Leap forward to 2009 from 1865 and you get a Fibonacci 144 years. If you’ve got your thinking cap on you’re already wondering about the length of time between 1776 and 1865, and yes, it is a Fibonacci 89 years.

But wait, it gets worse! Hyperinflation in 2009, would only be a side dish, the main course is war. Note well, these were not simply wars, but wars with ourselves. The Civil War was sometimes literally brother against brother until it ended in 1865. King George was our King, we were his subjects, until we declared independence on the fourth of July, 1776.

Are we really headed for war with ourselves and hyperinflation once again in 2009? This cluster of Fibonacci numbers linking up and landing on the year 2009 is striking and elegant. Is this the year where the old world ends and the new world begins? Leonardo Fibonacci says yes.
