Why the Number 108

The number 108 is known as "nature's secret code," "nature's universal rule." and "the golden ratio". This magic number governs the dimensions of everything from the Great Pyramid at Giza to the iconic seashell...The Nautilus.


A nautilus shell has 1.08 progression, (small to large), of rooms, or segments of its shell. So, as the sea creature grows, each chamber of its shell's growth is 1.08 times larger than the last chamber, creating a logarithmic spiral within the exterior of the shell. BEAUTIFUL!!!


Another reason for the number 108 is with the mathematical relationship between our Sun, Moon, and Earth:


The diameter of the sun is about 108 times that of the diameter of Earth. The average distance between the Earth and the Sun is 108 times the sun's diameter. The average distance from the Earth to the Moon is 238,800 miles, about 108 times the moons diameter.


We also find, the number 108 in the dimensions of our very own human DNA.
