Impressive Math Behind the Infinite Pattern That Never Repeats

This pattern will make your head hurt in the best way possible.

Imagine a pattern that goes on forever, you'd expect it to repeat at some point, wouldn't you? Well, as mathematics shows and much-loved YouTube channel Veritasium explains, an infinite pattern that never repeats itself is actually possible.

The description of the video stated that the simple rules of geometry indicated that 5-fold symmetry was impossible as well as crystals without a periodic structure. This has turned out to be wrong and learning the story of this pattern that goes 400 years back is just a treat to listen when it is explained by Veritasium since he makes everything sound so easy.

Especially if you get a kick out of geometry, this video will inspire you and widen your horizons. While it is probable that you might not understand everything that's being said, the golden ratio and the parallel lines showing the Fibonacci sequence will undoubtedly blow your mind. Confused? Well, the video might clear things up for you. Just tune in, you won't regret it.
