Seashell models**

This amazing image came from Facebook newsfeed from Nassim Haramein.  Most appropriate for my blog here!  I shall check up the origin.......asap.

Caracas born Venezuelan artist Raphael Arajuo makes "these wildly detailed drawings".  Here is web link to see them,  and his website is

****16/6/2015  Raphael Araujo also has a Facebook Page = beautiful.

There are six models that I am crocheting just now,  all tentative efforts, not yet finished.  Not perfected yet........ I shall publish as soon as it is to hand.

The Seashell Models Continue.**

Here I try to imagine what the inside of the tall seashell looks like.  It still is not exact.  Thinner column inside.  Height is 3 or 5 times the width.  Tricky to make.

One observes with wonder that the mantle of the live creature inside does all the mathematical work exactly,  building up the calcium and proteins and coloured minerals via glands.  Is there a Nature Spirit or spiritual creator being at work every second in the life of this organism?
It is said that of even we human beings "we are more like flickering flames than lumps of meat" ....I need to find the right quote...  ***12/3/2015  I corrected some words,  and still have to find the author when I get back home

3/4/2015  more:  It was Candace Pert on Life Matters ABC Radio,  but I lost my notebook.  You can find YouTube video interview with the late Candace Pert,
On the brain.  Interestingly one video on miraculous cures....she said - we have been lied to ----cancer is caused by pollution!

**Is spirit and matter like a strobe light?
 Physics articles on Facebook feed indicate something like it.

aah---here is the article:-
Nobel Prize winning physicists have proven beyond doubt that the physical world is one large sea of energy that flashes into and out of being in milliseconds, over and over again.

My own diagram of the inside of a real seashell, above, was drawn and published previously.  
Post of 4 May 2013.
The very inside is shown to be paper thin.

This model above  has been published earlier  (post of 19 January 2012) and subsequent posts, in "A Proper Pattern"    which has had more than 500 pageviews already.  It is not a perfect crochet pattern yet,  the top is tricky;  am working on it.


Here are two new efforts,  just tentative ones.  I wondered what shape would come if one used the algorithm I discovered in 2010 to make the first seashell models...
 ie   Fn = 2Fn-2  +  Fn-3 of the Fibonacci Series.
 eg  ....  13=2x5 +3,  21=2x8 +5,  34=2x13 + 8,  55=2x2x21 +13,  89=2x34 +21,  144=2x55 + 34.  etc.

The top image (144 stitches crochet) is like a top shell.
The lower image (89 stitches crochet) is like a whelk.

The difference is the 2x side is one one side in one model,  and it is one the other side for the other,  ie  144= 2x 55 + 34   versus   89= 21 + 2x55.
The 2x  area of the Fibonacci fan skews the frilly edge one way or the other.
Also the thin central portion of the Fibonacci fan is accordingly placed.
Here the stiching up of each item is as recently determined =  nothing like the way it was done in 2010.


I am working on 3 more different models,  not finished yet.  Very tricky.  One tries one way and it doesn't turn out quite as expected.  So one has to start again and again, experimenting.

There are 2 more permutations for the above algorithm equation,  
ie  144 = 17 + 2x55 + 17,   maybe this might become a bubble shell?  skew is in the middle.
or,,,,  34 = 2x13 +5 one row, turn,  55 = 2x21 + 13 next row, etc,  so the skew is even over piece.

Plus make a plain row between each increase row...
put stripe rows of a different colour in to designate particular rows...

Plus how much of the model needs to be paper thin in the middle?  1.2?  1/3?  1/4?

Then there is the usual algorithm I use 
 ie 4 crochet stitches make 7  which is adjusted to 13 makes 21 stitches

**Plus the new,  for me,  algorithm  of 4 stitches into 5  ie crochet in 3 then 2x into 4th, making 5.  
My reckoning is that this fits the fibonacci series together with the half fibonacci series,  published earlier.  
Here one fibonacci number made into the next fibonacci number takes 2 rows' work 
 whereas the 13 to 21 algorithm does it in  one row.


Meanwhile it is autumn and peaches (three trees full) are ripe. 
Making jam and preserves is all done now,  and I might just get around at last to focusing on these seashell models,  that is, if I don't get distracted by something else. 
 Summer has been terribly hot in my caravan-  34 degrees C  even up to 37,  39!  At least we have survived  - no bush fires this year in our region,  tho it has been fiendishly dry - no rain.

Gorgeous parrot.   Maybe a rainbow lorikeet,  but I do not know my bird names exactly.  Birds enjoy gnawing at fruit.  The Black Swamp Wallaby and maybe a fox have been feeding also.  Plenty for us all.  One has to collect up all the  fallen fruit and put into black plastic bags into a bin to compost and to kill any fruit fly.  Luckily only a few fruits have inside rotten brown with fruit fly this season.
