golden ratio

The golden section, Golden Ratio, Golden Mean, Divine Proportion, Phi, φ, are all names for the same, a ratio. And what about Fibonacci? That resembles it, but it is not the same thing.

The Golden Ratio is the ratio A (the largest part) / B (the smallest part) = (A + B) / A = φ

Phi(φ) is an infinite number, without a repetitive pattern (so completely random), comparable to Pi (π). Rounded off this number is φ; 1.61803398875… or also known as 5^0.5 x 0.5 + 0.5.

So what can we do with that number? You can see it as a division. Suppose we have a line of 2 cm that we are going to divide with this ratio. The largest piece (A) becomes 2/φ = 1,236… What remains of this is piece B, so 2 – 1,236 = 0,763…

With this ratio we can make a spiral. This spiral can continue indefinitely, both smaller and larger. Theoretically, this spiral has no beginning and no end.

    What makes Sacred Geometry so sacred?

    Geometry is just geometry, isn't it? Why is there a distinction between geometries? What makes Sacred Geometry so sacred? In mathematics you can go in any direction with geometry, but every geometrical figure is created from a base. Actually, everything originates from a certain basis. Sacred geometry is the basis of everything that is. Everything? [...] More  →

    A lot of knowledge in two circles: The Vesica Piscis – Sacred Geometry

    Yep. This whole blog is about two circles. But not just two circles. They overlap and we give it a difficult name: Vesica Piscis! Doesn't sound very exciting, I know. But they contain so much sacred geometry that we can fill a whole blog with it. It is also the first sacred geometric figure to [...] More  →
