Episode 1 - "Numbers" delves into the connection between the proportions of the Chartres Cathedral and the life cycle of the cicada, how we hear sound and the shell of the nautilus. Du Sautoy believes that the creators of the ancient cathedrals had a unique understanding of God's creation and how it was tied to numbers and the power of pi.
Episode 2 - "Shapes" takes you to Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland and explains how a local giant helped create this formation. Du Sautoy explains a hidden truth discovered that explains everything from honeycombs to virtual worlds of Pixar movies!
Episode 3 - "Prediction" is by far my favorite episode. If you're a bit of a conspiracy theorist or into predicting the future, you'll definitely find this one fascinating. Professor du Sautoy takes a look at how patterns of behavior of migratory birds and even serial killers are all tied into the code of chaos - often referred to as the butterfly effect.
If you enjoy learning about the mysteries of the world, you'll want to check this DVD out. Yes, there's a bit of math tossed in here to understand the basic concepts but the program is definitely enjoyable to those of us who aren't math scholars. The movie will answer your questions about why things happen the way they do in a way that is both interesting and fun to watch.
