Mt. Meru as Symbol for Fibonacci Series

The sacred mountain of the Rig-Veda is named Maatra Meru. According to the ancient Vedic grammarian Pingala in his Art of Prosody, this "Mountain of Cadence" is a symbol for the sum of diagonals equivalent to what we now call the Fibonacci Series.

As written in the RV, Lord Kubera's gold is hidden inside the sacred mountain by asuras (serpent spirits). This is likely a reference to the golden ratio toward which the Fibonacci series spirals like a coiled serpent. It is no coincidence that the Great Pyramid of Giza was originally called Mera and Egypt known as To-Mera or the land of Mera. It is a recreation of the transcendental Mount Meru of the Rig-Veda which is itself an allegory for the golden ratio and spiraling Fibonacci series found throughout Nature.
