Humans the imperfect Golden Ratio...

This post will ask your opinions on what most of us are considered to be the imperfects compared to Phidias' famous golden ratio.

The golden ratio can be found everywhere in nature, but humans were thought to also have this feature. The perfect human would equal phi!

It can also be found in art! Which to me means that there can be a perfected art form that appeals to the perfect human.

The pyramids and other great structures have been found to have the golden ratio. Does this make it perfect?

The next topic confuses me with both religion, math and scientific fact. It was said that god created us in his image. Right? Well why is it we find imperfections in humans such as mental and physical disabilities? Is "god" him or herself mentally and physically challenged? Why would a caring "god" put such pain on certain individuals and make others so close to phi that they appeal to everyone?

My question to the reader is, how can such a "god" be so unfair? Please no bible quotes, if you have to, put it in your own words so it can be analyzed!

What does the majority of you say this is? Phi was used in many of Leonardo Da Vinci's works such as the "Last Supper", "The Mona Lisa" and etc. Phidias (500BC-432 BC), used this number in alot of his architectural works.

Can this number be so perfect that it simplifies everything and lets you know what to look at and what not too?

Interesting fact! A credit card is in the shape of the golden rectangle! Does that make it easier to use?

You can see phi in the color

Here it is in music!...Music

Something I would like to point out. You know how they say if you let an infant (1-3yrs) listen to classical music they will more likely be more intelligent? I've heard this many of times, my parents didn't however and I was listening to "shout at the devil" by motley crue before I could blink! haha. Well not only do the acoustical instruments play to phi they were built to it.

One more thing and I found this outrageous too an extent.

I'm gonna throw this in there for whatever reason, you could've just look at the site for yourselves, but I'll make it easier.


Does this factor out, mathematically, the "god" probability?

wow thats really cool. it kind of shows how math and art are related. that maked people like me wonder because iv been pretty good at both math and different kinds of art my whole life...very nice

Thank you! I too find it interesting how everything is connect one way or another by math! And what's great about it is that it doesn't take a "rocket scientist" too see this. Maybe that's why advertisements have this conveniently placed in their adds. Maybe to appeal to the human sub-conscious?

If this is the case then people should have no problem making great work of art or great music for all genres!

I mean take the "mona lisa" for example or the "last supper"! Great work of art.

im a muscian and that just taught me more about how ALOT of instruments work in the same of those site has a software called phimatrix design sure that would be fun to toy with

I find this pretty damn intriguing, the use of phi in the BIBLE. This states here that the number 666 is actually the number of the man.

ya i read up on kinda seems to loosly tie everything together but in any case its very intresting how almost everything relates to phi or the golden really intrested in the phiscale

I happy to see someone is interested I just wish more people would comment? I think it's because I posted it alittle to late into the night? No one was on.

This is talked a lot about in the NWO responsible for concert pitch thread

Definitely interesting to think about.

You should check out sacred geometry and the flower of life(my user pic). Inside the flower of life you can find all gemetric shapes, 2d, 3d and even the shadow of 4d(impossible for us to actually see).

I think the flower of life is the basic structure of the universe. Although to be more accurate I would call it a construct of our perception.

Sacred Geometry goes hand in hand with this topic.

Also, when it says "in gods image", it's talking about consciousness/soul, not about the physical body IMO.

Interesting stuff for sure.

Right you can really get to pin point alot about our reality! I have to go to drill for the next three days, but i'll be back to talk more on this subject.
