Most of the people I know glaze over if I even bring it up. So it's a cute pattern. Big deal. Yawn. They don't understand that this is the essential geometric pattern for all matter, consciousness, light, time, space, all the religions--everything in the universe. It is found all over the world, from ancient cultures in art and architecture. It contains all five Platonic solids which are the basis for all the elements in the periodic table. It has had a profound effect upon history as secret societies guard its secrets to where any amount of suppression and violence is deemed alright. The layout of Washington DC follows this pattern precisely. And science is still discovering the relevance contained in this pattern. Talk about aesthetics, I can think of nothing more beautiful. This video is a cartoon that spells much of this out rather clearly. Enjoy.
