Flowers petal count matches the Fibonacci sequence:
8, 13, 21, 34 or 55. In the Fibonacci sequence (fn are given by the formula f1
= 1, f2 = 2, f3 = 3, f4 = 5 and generally f n+2 = fn+1 + fn) each number is
obtained from the sum of the two preceding: 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89,
When one observes the heads of sunflowers, one notices two
series of curves, one winding in one direction and one in another; the number
of spirals not being the same in each sense.
Why is the number of
spirals in general either 21 and 34, either 34 and 55, either 55 and 89, or 89
Why do they have either 8 spirals from one side and 13 from
the other, or either 5 spirals from one side and 8 from the other?
is the number of diagonals of a pineapple also 8 in one direction and 13 in the
The answer to these questions is efficiency during the growth
cycle of plants.
The ratio between successive Fibonacci numbers
approximates an important constant called "the Golden Mean" or sometimes phi,
which is approximately 1.61803. The higher you go in the Fibonacci sequence,
the more closely the ratio between two successive numbers in the sequence
approximates phi. (By the way phi2=phi + 1!). The Fibonacci sequence also shows
up in Pascal's triangle, first used by the Chinese mathematician Chu Shih Chieh
in providing coefficients for the binomial expansion in his 1303 treatise "The
Precious Mirror of the Four Elements", if you add the diagonals!
Sacred Geometry involves using
sacred universal patterns in everything we design.
Sacred Geometry as
seen in sacred architecture, sacred art and Nature can be heard in sacred
found that an oscillating string stopped halfway along its length produces an
octave relative to the string's fundamental, while a ratio of 2:3 produces a
perfect fifth and 3:4 produces a perfect fourth.
Pythagoreans believed that
these harmonic ratios gave music powers of healing which could "harmonize" an
The Sacred Geometry of mathematical ratios,
harmonics and proportion were first noted in nature, music, light and cosmology
by the Ancients in poetry, stories, music and art work.
Those who see
the Sacred Geometry of the Pattern of Reality attempt to express their
pattern recognition with a complex system
of metaphorical allegories by building conceptual structures initially
involving light (good) and darkness (bad) to address all
levels of human intelligence.
The golden ratio, also known as the god ratio, golden proportion,
golden mean, golden section, golden number, divine proportion or sectio divina,
is an irrational number, approximately 1.618 033 988 749 894 848, that
possesses many interesting properties.
Shapes proportioned according to
the golden ratio have long been considered aesthetically pleasing in Western
cultures, and the golden ratio is still used frequently in art and design,
suggesting a natural balance between symmetry and asymmetry.
Pythagoreans, who defined
numbers as expressions of ratios (and not as units as is common today),
believed that reality is numerical and that the golden ratio expressed an
underlying truth about existence.
Plato said in the Republic (VII, 527 d,
e) that it is through geometry that one purifies the eye of the soul, "since it
is by it alone that we contemplate the truth."
Plato, for instance, discusses their
importance to both music and esoteric philosophy, he concentrates on the
Thus his discourses do not provide physical demonstrations of
the ratios, for they were not meant as textbooks, but as spiritual philosophy.
"We must endeavour to persuade those who are prescribe to be the
principal men of our State to go and learn arithmetic, not as amateurs, but
they must carry on the study until they see the nature of numbers with the mind
only; nor again, like merchants or retail-traders, with a view to buying or
selling, but for the sake of the soul herself; and because this will be the
easiest way for her to pass from becoming into truth and being." -
This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational purposes only.
This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has
been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their
agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race.
Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious
practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This
web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the
Way of Life - a rational religion based on reason which requires no leap of
faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in
which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation
with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality
in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human
spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on
this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their
religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site
in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the
violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels
desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already
controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global
industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse
of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of
global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not
occur at the point of a gun.
American social mores and values have
declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international
cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to
deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional
buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass
media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the
family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the
corrupt international elites vision of a perfect
world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the
bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the
corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which
further their purposes.
