The Golden Ratio
Nature's Mathematical Code
Fibonacci and The Human Finger
All about The Golden Number
It's very interesting to me that all living things in this world seem to have been stamped with a signature by their original creator. The signature stamp comes in the form of a mathematical ratio that measures distances between vital points of an organism. An example of this would be the following:
The Fibonacci Code is 1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21 34 55 89 …
The way it works is like this: if you throw a rock into a pond the distance between each wave created will follow the code. The first two waves will be separated by 1cm, the second by twice that and the third by 5 or the sum of the first and second and so on until it stops. The same can be done with the human body and every other living thing on this planet and in the universe. The magic number seems to be 1.618. When you divide the smaller numbers into the bigger ones, the ratio comes out to 1.618.
The rectangle above starts with 1 square, then 1 more square, then a bigger square that equals the size of the first two squares and that's the 2, the next square equals the size of the first three and that's the 3 and so on. When finished, you angle lines diagonally through the corners of the squares to produce the same dimensions of the spirals created in nature. The final creation is actually a rectangle but when created in this manner, it's called a Golden Rectangle. Human beings seem to be naturally drawn to things that fall into these dimensions and it's a well known secret among designers and builders.
Formula for Beauty
Perfection and Imperfection
There are many organisms that do not measure perfectly within the ratio numbers and those things are considered to be less attractive or even ugly. The things and beings that fall within the code on this planet are considered to be the most beautiful of their kind. This is what makes the Mona Lisa a masterpiece and this is partly what the Da Vinci Code is really all about. The secret to the code is that you can apply it to anything in the world and it will attract others to it just by its pure perfection. It's also the closest that man can come to replicating something with a quality similar to that of God himself.
Most of us know that images in magazines are touched up and edited to get rid of any imperfections. However, most people don't know that a popular program is one that aligns facial features to the Golden Ratio. As humans, we recognize golden measurements as being beautiful and things outside of these measurements are less beautiful or even ugly.
The Seal of God
Looking at the code of nature always makes me wonder about Atheists. How do they ignore all of the signs around us of some type of greater being. When you take a look at the Fibonacci Code, The Golden Mean or Golden Ratio, it starts to become obvious that there is an architect of this universe that we live in. He or She stamped it with a dimensional seal. The seal of our creator is everywhere. You can't get away from it even if you wanted to. Do you notice it? If your answer turns out to be yes then my question would be whether or not this alters your view of God and how we all came to be.
A great example of the code in nature is the tree and how it grows its leaves. The leaves don't just grown in random numbers. They follow the Fibonacci Code of 1,1,2,3,5,8,13 and so on. Pedals on flowers grow in the same manner. The hair spiraling out of your scalp is the same. A star exploding in the universe, waves in the ocean and measurements of a cloudy storm in the sky all follow this pattern. It's truly an amazing subject when you think about it and those of us who come to understand it have an advantage over those that don't. Be careful not to abuse it.
