Insides of Watermelon

Have you ever looked at the inside of a watermelon? The seeds are actually in a pattern. The come off of one of six swirly thingies. You can see it on the MRI of a watermelon. It's pretty amazing.

I guess I still think about it because it's pretty amazing to be able to find order and beauty when you don't really expect it. The seeds and spirals comply with the golden mean. There is three-point symmetry in the watermelon. It just seems like God put these interesting gems of beauty all around us, just waiting to be discovered.
