## The Golden Geometry of Phi

It’s important to understand where the most ubiquitous ratio in nature is found by using simple geometry.  The golden geometry of phi.  The divine proportion (the golden mean, Phi, the golden number, Fibonacci’s number) creates fractal expansion and contraction which creates life as we know it. The square root of five can sound scary, but when it is visually represented it’s not as frightening.  The square root of 5 (the cross section of a double square) is essential in the formula for Phi. It’s encoded everywhere from our dna to the geometry of a nautilus shell to the milky way.  Phi is found in plants though phyllotaxis,  or the way the leaves arrange themselves around the stem.  They rotate in golden angles. 222.5 degrees is golden among the 360. “The harmony of the world is made manifest in Form and Number, and the heart and soul…

## Quicksilver & Gaia

The orbits of Mercury and Earth and be described in this way. Draw a square around the orbit of Mercury. Surround this square with a circle. Do the same and draw another square around this circle. On the four corners of this larger square, draw four circles with radii that reach the last circle you drew. One more step. Draw a large circle around the four smaller circles. You just defined Earth’s orbit to 99.9% accuracy. The other planets in the solar system also show geometric relationships.  Geometry is number in space, and Music is number in time.  The solar system echoes these fundamentals of the Quadrivium through their orbital periods, sizes, and distance from the Sun.  Kepler discovered that the planets’ orbits neatly fit inside of nested platonic solids.  He called this Mysterium Cosmographicum.  Pythagoras and his buddies called it the Music of the…

## Saturn and Neptune

The orbits of Saturn and Neptune can be displayed in this simple diagram. Inscribe an equilateral triangle inside the orbit of Neptune. Now fit three equally sized circles within that triangle. Add another one of these circles to the middle of the diagram and you just defined Saturn’s orbit to within 99.9% accuracy. Is this all really just a coincidence? Mainstream cosmology will tell us that it is all chance. Planets are made of matter that eventually, over millions of years, slammed together to form a mindless sphere. Is that all it really is? How did the planets know to organize themselves according to geometric shapes and platonic solids? It seems that the solar system and the whole universe itself is not this dead unconscious matter that we have been led to beLieve. “Geometry existed before the creation. It is co-eternal with the mind…
