How modest of you Sisyphus! I thank you.
I will remain with the idea that absolute stasis isn't possible, so that balance must be a motion with respect to another motion.

I'm glad you accepted that with a smile.

Yeah, I suppose I could here say: cause and effect. Living causes change. Change is required o regain balance. Harmony is constant change including the highs and the lows as well as the mid-ranges.

Death is static. I'm not ready for that yet.

Balance and growth are related, quite keenly.

Damn! Those numbers were presented to me only two days ago in a documentary I was watching.

I was never drawn to the study of numerology but I think much practical knowledge is contained within the concept of fractals.

I've seen that image with tree branches before. I tried looking at actual trees to see if the branches are distributed like that, according to the Fibonacci sequence. I wasn't able to find that this was the case in reality. If you never do see a tree that has branches like that, take a photo and post here so I can see.

There are a lot of other examples of Fibonacci and the Golden Ratio though, in nature, in our bodies, etc.

Its also not actually necessary for a tree to balance like this - its a misunderstanding of why growth balances out at Phi.
Which is due to weight distribution.

Growth per the golden ratio occurs in such things as a rams horn or a snail house or a human ear because it maintains equal relative weight distribution during the growth - at no point in the process does the weight of the object tilt to one side.
