Dall'autore: Put a male and female rabbit in a cage and pretty soon you'll find three. Right?
After a while, there will be five, then eight, then thirteen, then twenty one!
2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21.
What is the pattern here?
We are adding each number to the previous one.
It was a man named Fibonacci who discovered this sequence.
Now, we can go on indefinitely with these calculations:
...13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377., 610...
But when we reach the figure of 144, a strange thing happens:
144 divided by 233 = 0.61803
233 divided by 377 = 0.61803
377 divided by 610 = 0,61803
Inversely, 610 over 377 = 1.61803
This is the mathematical value known as phi - or the Golden Mean.
Pi in its simplist form is 22/7 = 3.142857. We use pi to calculate the circumference and area of a circle.
Both these values were used extensively in the building of the Great Pyramid.
In From Dust to Trust, I explained how I discovered a concept which I called Bala Squared, which I believe is the golden mean of pi and phi.
For the ramifications of this concept, and other fascinating historical mysteries, check out The Golden Prize.
