The Divine Proportion

Golden Mean Title

Golden Mean Definition

Golden Rectangle

After removing the square section from a Golden Rectangle the remaining area is also another Golden Rectangle. (Note: 1/1.618 = 0.618)

 

Pythagorian Pentagram

Golden Section Spiral

Found many times in nature

The Parthenon

The proportions of the Golden Section were, and still are, considered to be particularly pleasing to the eye and it is claimed that many architectural buildings, objects, spaces as well as works of art including the layouts and proportions of paintings and their frames. have been designed according to these proportions. Interesting, but probably just speculation.

Credit Card

The standard dimensions for credit cards are 3.375 inches by 2.125 inches which represent a ratio of 1 : 1.588. Close to a golden section but not quite.

 

The ratios and the convergence of the continued fractions and the infinite series shown below all represent the Divine Proprtion
