Pithy, The Golden Mean Section

The Golden Mean is one of many names given to the system of measurement and design used by ancient artists, sculptures and architects to create highly aesthetic forms of unsurpassed beauty. The ugliness of so much 20th century architecture is due to the absence of spiritual proportion in favour of economy.  In the schools I attended, scorn was encouraged rather than respect for the values of our ancestors.


The Golden Mean was considered by Pythagoras, the Egyptians, the Druids, and other ancient schools of wisdom, to be clear evidence of the mind of God at work in nature. It is present in all living structures.  The human body was considered to be the measuring stick of the universe.  Its proportions embody the canon of the “Phi* Ratio”.  While the Phi, or Golden Ratio was formalized in mathematics, its natural counterpart was discovered by the monk Leonardo Fibonacci, who preceded Da Vinci by about 250 years. When Fibonacci studied growth patterns in plants he noted that their leaves emerge in a spiraling formation that demonstrates a significant angular and numerical sequence: 1 – 1 – 2 – 3 – 5 – 8 – 13 – 21 – 35 – 56, etc., where the next number is the sum of the preceding two numbers. This was a remarkable discovery as it synchronizes with the ancient math used to calculate the Phi ratio. This is why the ancients considered sacred geometry to be the Creators signature made visible in nature.  From the spiral of a snail-shell to the spiral of the galaxy, the Fibonacci sequence is everywhere; even in our bones.  This also applies to the study of crystal atomic geometry.  Even our cells, from conception, grow in perfect geometric proportion.

Human anatomical geometry is said to be the measuring rule of the universe. The large green circle surrounding our man on the left side of the picture below corresponds to the diameter of the Earth, while the small circles of the “Flower of Life” (also called the “Cosmic Fish Net”) which make the human Merkaba, correspond in exact proportion to the diameter of the moon. The Flower of Life pattern is the matrix of Metatron’s Cube; which is the foundation of all atomic phenomena and houses the Platonic Solids: which are the at the heart of all crystal geometry.  This is a geometrically verifiable fact. It is also somewhat intriguing that the ancients knew to a high degree of accuracy the circumference and diameters of the Earth and the moon extrapolated from, amongst other things, study of the human form. They did not think that the Earth was flat. This notion was enforced during the dark ages. The centre of the upper circle, where the apex of the male tetrahedron ends, is the exact location of the causal chakra. To repeat, the large circle corresponds to the circumference of the earth and the small circles to the circumference of the moon when the human body is measured with sacred geometry.

The Fibonacci spiral originating with our lady in the yellow background above, contains its male counterpart in the straight lines drawn inside it. Note that when we position the spiral so that the straight male line intersects the lady’s navel, the male line of the spiral on the mans body intersects his genitals. This synchronicity is significant on the energetic levels for the processes of conception and birth.  In the final picture on the right of the diagram below, we have emphasised the Golden Mean heart as this symbolises the universal harmony that underlies our gender and our geometric relationship with the planet.  The Man is set in the square while the lady is set in the circle.  The geometry is appropriate.  Whichever way you look at it, we are crystals at the centre of our being.
*”Phi”, being a Greek word, rhymes with ‘high’.

    1. Hi Aina, thank you so much for writing. The winter season takes much out of me, sometimes leaving me with barely enough energy even to read. Thankfully, the days are beginning to stretch; and I look forward to some level of recovery when the sun returns.


      1. Just hang in there. Winter should be over soon, more sun in spring. Take care. Oh btw, you’re posts are getting more meaningful. Regards to yours.


  1. Excellent and I have never thought that a perfect Fibonacci section might also appear at the moment when man and woman become one… That’s quite beautiful.
    Best regards! Aquileana 😀
