The Golden Ratio exists in all living matter as well as in science, mathematics, music, star formations and even architecture. It is how our minds were formed to perceive things. For example, look at your fingers or your arms. The distance from your finger joints or your arm joints is not evenly balanced. There is a difference of 1.618 in the measurement of each. However, to look at an individual, this unusual characteristic seems totally natural.
Also known as the Fibonacci Sequence, it was first discovered by Leonardo of Pisa in 1202 and has been the basis of natural law since. The petals of a flower, the segments of an ant or our DNA molecule all share the same distinct equation. How much closer to a connection with the universe can you get than this?
The Golden Ratio is the basis on how aesthetic a person, animal, tree or building appears to us. What do you consider pretty? What do you consider ugly? If you took measurements of the subject in question, you would find that your basis for beauty is based on the fact of measurement. Think of how false teeth are always more contoured to a face than the real set of teeth. Each segment is proportionately set according the the Fibonacci Sequence.
I find this tidbit of information most intriguing when driving down the road. Look toward a row of trees and notice how the tops seem to perfectly align and flow against a blue sky even though there is no even formation. Start looking for the Golden Ratio in everything that the world provides. It will give you a sense of connection like never before.
