Nature's Golden Ratio

Leonardo "Fibonacci" of Pisa revealed a numeric sequence in which each subsequent number is the sum of the previous two: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89 and so on. The sequence in turn gives rise to several unique ratios including .618, .382 and 1.618 (AKA The Phi or Fibonacci Ratio).

These ratios exist throughout nature in the form of fractals or golden sections. Although they have been employed in man made structures like the Pyramids in sacred geometry, they have always existed throughout all of nature, living and non-living. We can reveal systems of fractals based in the Golden Ratio.

Robust fractals permeate all life forms; they are a combination of self identical and indefinite fractals. Trees are branching robust fractals as are living circulatory, bronchial, and nervous systems.

Inventor of the neurophone, Patrick Flanagan, conducted experiments to determine the effect of various Phi-based Geometries on muscle strength. Pyramid shapes based in the Golden Ratio made people very strong. The neurophone is superior learning technology based in the Golden Ratio as well as energy healing devices.

Penrose and Hameroff provocatively suggest that consciousness emerges through the quantum mechanics of microtubules. Microtubules are composed of thirteen tubulin, and exhibit 8:5 phyllotaxis. Clathrins, located at the tips of microtubules, are truncated icosahedra, self identical fractals or golden sections.

DNA exhibits a Phi resonance in its 34:21 angstrom Fibonacci ratio and the cross-section through a molecule is decagonal (a double-pentagon made of golden sections).

The Human Interface

Our brainwaves or neural patterns can be entrained by external stimuli through the frequency following response. For example, in a short time after listening to a steady rhythm like a drum beat, our dominant brainwaves follow that beat. The evoked cortical response also causes our autonomic functions to follow that rhythm like our heart beats.

The human body's neural system contains a synchronization pulse or "synch pulse" (like a metronome). The synch pulse represents our normal state of equilibrium. Music enters through our ears and creates a pulse position like a shadow, shape, or color contrast with regard to the synch pulse. Our nervous systems utilize pulse positions, so we can sense depth in the physical world.

One neuron processes thousands of signals or pulses from different sources of stimuli simultaneously. While each neuron transmits our resonant "life beat" or synch pulse, each one also transmits all sorts of semi-random pulses as our organism interfaces with the environment.

That "synch pulse" is a set of floating harmonics based in the Golden Ratio, the integral of our brainwaves combined with our other life processes.

Knowing the Golden Ratio

Unlike the fuzzy logic we use to identify people, places, and things, we are far more subjective when we sense the Golden Ratio. We tend to see beauty and feel pleasure when we encounter forms and functions based on this ratio which is integral to creation and life; this is why we're attracted to the intense sensory experience provided by nature.

People have recognized this and built structures based in sacred geometry like stonehenge and other megalithic structures, not only because of their strength and beauty; they also resonate with the strength and beauty within our minds. We want to achieve perfection because we realize that nature is not perfect.

Physical nature dances around the Golden Ratio; like a spinning gyroscope interpolating it's central axis, physical nature is not exactly centered on perfection. We humans are the ones who measured, interpolated, and extrapolated this fundamental nature of perfection. We are the ones who focus on perfection provided by the Golden Ratio.

This begs the question: What happens when we resonate with a function that focuses on perfection?

According to Scott Olsen, instructor of Philosophy & Comarative Religion at Central Florida Community College, "In a state of PHI-induced quantum coherence, one may experience samadhi, cosmic conscious identification with the awareness of the Universe Itself."

Therefore, when we are entrained by stimuli based in the Golden Ratio, we transcend our lower level consciousness to be one with our bodies and our true nature; this has been our goal for ages.
