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

Michael Schneider leads us on a mind-blowing, lavishly illustrated trip alongside the numbers one via ten to discover the mathematical ideas made obvious in plants, shells, crystals, vegetation, and the human physique, expressed within the symbolic language of folks sayings and fairy stories, delusion and faith, paintings and structure. this can be a new view of arithmetic, no longer the single we discovered in class yet a complete consultant to the styles that recur in the course of the universe and underlie human affairs. A Beginner's advisor to developing, the Universe exhibits 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 artwork 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 sunlight method.

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

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

  • And even more.
