Using love (and hate) to calculate with negative numbers

Pine cones, Fibonacci numbers and Christmas
The Fibonacci sequence is an amazing mathematical pattern found in nature and there is evidence of the sequence in this layer of a pine cone. One layer of this pine cone shows 21 white marks where the seeds had been....and yes, the layer above this had 13 seeds.
