Halloween, guys. Almost. Everyone knows or should know the classic formula: Phi, Pi, antique witching… That’s 1.618, 3.1416, and bring your personal magic. It’s the season! — by “antique witching” we mean the old way — how our attention is attracted and held. The immanent witchcraft in nature. It IS mathematical.
Read Phi, Pi and the Great Pyramid at Giza. Ancient Egyptian builders and designers incorporated geometric and “resonant” ratios. By “resonance” I mean the ratio replicated itself in a series or sequence of scales. They discovered the Phi ratio, or golden mean, and applied it multi-dimensionally. A jewelry box could be conceptually unfolded and flattened into a golden ratio tutorial. Phi proportioned pyramids, furnishings, design of artistic and funerary objects. Amazing stuff, really.
Phi as you recall brings us the Golden Section, the golden mean, or the Fibonacci ratio. Or, the Fibonacci sequence: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89. Each number adds the two previous numbers. Phi geometric ratios offer .618, 1, 1.618, 2.618 and so on. It appears in Egyptian art, Leonardo paintings, seashells, other natural forms and, tadaah, the stock market. The mystery of this persisting cadence in nature, in our perception, is unsolved.
In this regard, we want to mention a book about Phi in the financial markets — Fibonacci Trading, by Carolyn Boroden.
Zero gravity pens
By the way, I noticed in one of my colleagues’ review of a pen, the following phrase: “Writes at any angle, even in Zero Gravity. Simply the most versatile pen ever made.” Zero gravity? I need a pen that writes in zero gravity –perhaps alien abductions have been more numerous than I realized… It’s the FISHER SPACE RAW BRASS BULLET PEN. Just kidding, but really, an amazing device.
While we are talking about Phi, you may already know the Phi Phenomenon poses a visual illusion. Perceived stationary objects seem to be moving. Read the britannica.com definition.
