The Code follows Professor Marcus Du Sautoy, who goes in the search for a mysterious code or set of numbers and shapes that govern how the world is run. Sautoy says that there are signs and numbers everywhere and his plan is to reveal the numbers and shapes that explain everything. In a three-part series, he looks at prime numbers and how they can explain the 13-year life cycle of the periodic cicada and how simple number ratios create cathedrals that are mirrored God's creation. By exploring the numbers, Sautoy also looks at how the radar that is used by air traffic controllers is of, how a number doesn't exist, the structure of the nautilus shell and how Newtons Law of Universal Gravitation is explained.
Numbers are the rulers of the universe. What if there is a code for life's perfection? A code making the world we see, the "what we are" and the "everything else in the universe"?
