Nautilus is one of the best examples of the logarithmic spirals found in nature. Famous mathematician Jacob Bernoulli said that logarithmic spirals are a symbol of “fortitude and constancy in adversity, or of the human body, which after all its changes, even after death, will be restored to its exact and perfect self”.
