Golden Ratio Examples
Nautilus. Ever growing, ever changing. Once it grows a new, larger chamber it cannot go back to the previous ones; they no longer fit. It has no choice but to move on. Still, the old chambers are still part of them. Just as we are forced to move through life. Our past still stands and affects who we are today.
The Golden ratio is a number found by dividing a line into two parts so that the longer part divided by the smaller part is also equal to the whole length divided by the longer part. It is symbolized using phi, after the Greek alphabet. In an equation form, it looks like this: a/b = (a+b)/a = 1.618033988749894842 As with pi, the digits go on and on, theoretically into infinity. Phi is usually rounded off to 1.618.
