Ahh, the most beautiful sequence there is.  This is known as the Fibonacci Sequence and it occurs in real life in an actual cactus (or succulent I believe). Whats so special about it is that the sequence goes like this 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34 The next number is the sum of the digits.  It can be represented as x(n-1) + x(n-2)
