The latest Official Ringo Starr update certainly urges us to do the Math. So fasten your seat belt (Alas, if he would have fastened his seatbelt, this would not be necessary).
Obviously our journey to enlightenment involves the passage of time.
The Beatles have a great interest in the passage of time. I know of no album that has more references to time than Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
So imagine my surprise to hear Ringo promoting his appearance on the Powerpuff Girls. We have crossed this road before.
Notice the clock in a frame from the first Beatles-related Powerpuff case.
So is there anything mysterious in this new Powerpuff episode featuring Ringo?
Yes, it turns out that Ringo portrays famous mathematician Fibonacci. The famous Fibonacci sequence and its relationship with the Golden Ratio is enough to make you think there is some kind of conspiracy of hidden knowledge being programmed into kids. The Fibonacci Sequence is closely related to Indian Mathematics. In fact some credit goes to an Indian number cruncher named Gopāla, who was not mentioned specifically in an unreleased George Harrison song, or was he?
But it is Fibonacci himself who leads us into a most interesting area of mystery. In his book Liber Abaci, the famous mathematician considers the fruition and multiplication of a group of rabbits who spontaneously died in the movie El Topo, a John Lennon favorite, whose soundtrack was released on Apple Records.
All of those Fibonacci rabbits died when they sensed the presence of a stranger who would kill their master. Now what kind of hole would a bunch of dead rabbits lead to???
UPDATE:O silly me. I forget to send Ringo's tree to the "I can see a face in the tree" department. Geoffrey, take it down right away, please.
