Few years back , I was totally mad about the Divine Proportion . It was influenced by Dan Brown’s book ” The Da Vinci Code “. I started gropping more and more info about the Fibonacci series which is very simple to understand but has the unique and Divine Proportion , i.e. 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, …( it is formed by starting with 0 and 1 and then adding any two consecutive terms to obtain the next one ,- 0 , 1 , 0+1=1 , 1+1=2 , 1+2=3 , 2+3= 5 and so on .

The interesting part is it is closely related to the the twenty-first letter of the Greek alphabet Φ, or φ (phi ) , which is also known by different names , Golden Ratio , Golden Mean etc. Phi is the basis for the Golden Ratio, Section or Mean . The ratio, or proportion, determined by Phi (1.618 …) was known to the Greeks as the “dividing a line in the extreme and mean ratio” and to Renaissance artists as the “Divine Proportion”

The relationship of the Fibonacci sequence to the golden ratio is this: The ratio of each successive pair of numbers in the sequence approximates Phi (1.618. . .) , as 5 divided by 3 is 1.666…, and 8 divided by 5 is 1.60 and so on . The ratio of successive Fibonacci numbers converges on phi and After the 40th number in the sequence, the ratio is accurate to 15 decimal places.

1.618033988749895 . .

The Golden Ratio can be seen and found in nature ; in shells ,petals of flowers ,branches of trees , seed heads , pine cones , spiral galaxies , body parts etc.

I am fascinated by this Divine Proportion and few years back wrote a poetry about it in fb.

its not much of a poetry , but I did expressed the influenced that this proportion had on me . ………!

here is my attempt for a haiku about geometric pattern .

readinpleasureWow!. You nailed it beautifully. This is too technical for me. 🙂

milan rajkumarPost authorNo it is the simplest thing to understand ! Pl look at YouTube at this link https://youtu.be/4ToUaU4vPks

By the way thank you Celestine you always inspire me !

nosaintaugustineI love your unexpected subject matter after that in-depth preface. Simply beautiful.

milan rajkumarPost authorO thank you ! You are very kind !

milan rajkumarPost authorThank you !

ChèvrefeuilleAwesome … mathematical explanation of the Golden Ratio, and you nailed it for sure. Nice poem, but your haiku is extraordinary wonderful. Chapeau!

milan rajkumarPost authorThank you Kristjaan , if you say ok , it’s ok !!!!

TournesolOh my how I can relate to DanBrown…Demons and Angels is the book he wrote before Davinci Code but his research on the first brought him to the next. I was very absorbed by this book and being of Catholic background very disturbed. (not naive but upset) I love your poetry you have shared here…it turns out you came through this puzzling period with a new fresh outlook on life. When I go on my retreats with Amma, one of her swamis guides us in meditation…In our mind we hear Ma as we inhale and OM as we exhale. Beautifully written, Milan!

milan rajkumarPost authorThanks , Cheryl / when I mention Dan Brown it does not meant his philosophy but the information about Fibonacci and the Divine no , ie the value of phi , which is 1.6 , abruptly . It can be seen anywhere in many forms .

on the other hand , the first word an infant mumbles is mmmma…. Definitely Om . It’s good to hear that you do meditation .
