Fibonacci number - Need some help

Hi all,

I am in no way math literate, but I'm looking for help on something.

I've had a number going round in my head non-stop as well as the idea that this number describes the nature of a 3-dimensional spiral.

The number is 144444444 (infinite fours)... it may also be 1.44444(infinite fours).

I realise that this is probably a shot in the dark, but I'm hoping that someone may be able to help or perhaps even guide me to the right direction.

Thanks in advance,

This isn't a number.

This is $\frac{13}9$. It's nothing to do with Fibbonacci.

A three-dimensional spiral is a helix.
