This is truly the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the topic at hand: 1.618 or Phi. Maybe you went to art history school or design school and are aware of its relevance, but there is always more to discover. This number, golden ratio, golden section, etc. is important to artists, musicians, biologists, architects, philosophers, theologists, and many more people across the world and throughout time.
Its implications could be a scientific as the laws governing nature or as spiritual as the design of creation. It’s also possible that it could be both, or neither, and that we are just recognizing arbitrary instances of a meaningless number.
One thing is for sure, if you let yourself get lost in these videos, you can have something pretty cool to meditate on, ponder or bullshit about… have fun.
Step 1: Explaining Phi or 1.618 <- Watch this First
Step 2: Now 1.618 and Fibonacci and Design <- Awesome video
Step 3: More Phi instances, ignore the creepy music, gets boring 5:30min in
Step 4: A Visual Reward – A Gorgeous Video of Phi in Nature
If you have made it this far, congratulations. I don’t have any prizes for you. But now you know what my nights are like on YouTube. Like I said this is the tip of the iceberg. It’s up to you to decide what that iceberg means, and why it’s there.
