About Cosima’s Tattoo (i.e totally useless information) 

so I was reading some of kannazuki's theories about clones and monitor business, and I took a moment to appreciate this lovely screen cap

This is a great cap cause we can see Cosimas Nautilus Shell tattoo.

When I first saw this I was like “of course the golden ratio! Cosima would totally dig that”

Also upon googling symbolism of the nautilus shell I found this:

Sacred Geometry

Sacred Geometry is a term used to describe the basic building blocks of the universe. This ancient science explores and explains the physical and energy patterns that create and unify all things and reveals the way that the Universe of creation organizes itself. Every natural pattern of growth or movement conforms inevitably to one or more geometric shapes. From the molecules of our DNA to the galaxy we spiral within, life and it’s forms emerge out of geometric codes.

Sacred Geometry reflects the universe, its pure forms and the dynamic relationship of our selves to nature — the inseparable relationship of the part to the whole. By studying the Sacred Geometry of one thing we give meaning and structural insight into the workings of the inner self

Sacred Geometry of the Nautilus

The spiral is a common element of Sacred Geometry as well as to all natural development. Spirals in nature tend to follow the Golden Ratio (Phi) or Fibonacci Sequence in their rates of expansion. The key to Sacred Geometry is the relationship between the progression of growth and proportion. Harmonic proportion and progression are the essence of the created universe and is consistent with nature around us.

This geometry of the Nautilus can be found in the spiral patterns of cauliflower, the placement of the leaves on most plants, the arrangement of pattern on a pine cone. The ratios can be retrieved from the shape of our DNA and the measurement of distant galaxies as the Sacred Geometry demonstrates the blueprint of the sacred foundation of all things and the interconnectedness of all the various parts of the whole.
