A very simple 180° spiral reveals a core which emerges and disappears.
The Diatom Table by Max Mccance

‘So many things in nature grow in a spiral. The mediaeval Italian mathematician, Fibonacci, gave us the Fibonacci sequence of numbers, which yield what is known as the Golden Ratio. This ratio describes every spiral that we find in nature, from nautilus shells and pinecones, to spiral galaxies. The exploration of the possibilities yielded by such mathematical sequences is often reflected in my work.’
