I finally tackled a subject that has fascinated me:
I would appreciate any feedback or corrections.
Also, did it get confusing or "unconnected" as you were reading it?
I tried 0.61803 in the animation and got a straight line. I had previously worked well with .318
Edit to add: I went back and tried .318 again and it returned a straight line.

You can shear a sheep many times but skin him only once.
Yea, there is a bug. I tried a few numbers and got different patterns. Then all of the sudden it kept doing a striaght line for whatever I inputted.
Still playing with it...
It seems to happen after a number of tries. I can't seem to find any magic number that screws it up.
But great article. Maybe you want to include the formula for the fib numbers, which also happens to use the golden ratio.
Could be something wrong with the number - an extra space or something, so that it is "NAN" (not a number).
I slightly altered how it interprets the number ... hopefully that will fix it.
Yes, the formula for Fibonacci Numbers is a good idea, but maybe not in that article.
