I guarantee that if you don’t know about the Golden Ratio, when you learn about it you will think about it and remember it for the rest of your life. You will want to tell others about it.

Please follow steps 1-5 in order. It is best to look at the video (step 6) last.

1. Look at this sequence of numbers: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 987 

2. Get out your calculator,

3. Notice that each number is the sum of the two preceding it. i.e. 0+1=1, 1+1=2, 2+1=3, 3+2=5 and so on….

4. Notice that if you divide any number by its preceding number you get 1.6*

e,g, 21/13 = 1.62*

e.g. 8/ 5 = 1.60*

e.g. 987/610 = 1.62*

5, look at this shell. Note the spirals.

Royal Game

Just ask: What person or group are we afraid to criticise?

That is the answer. Think about it.

The Danger of Comparison

Why is it so dangerous to compare ourselves with others? Scroll down to below the pictures for the answer.

“Comparison is the thief of joy”

Quote attributed to Theodore Roosevelt.

How brave are we?

Consider this quote attributed to Nietzche:

“The strength of a person’s spirit would then be measured by how much ‘truth’ he could tolerate, or more precisely, to what extent he needs to have it diluted, disguised, sweetened, muted, falsified.”

This forces us to ask ourselves two questions:

  • How much truth can we tolerate?
  • To what extent do we dilute, disguise, sweeten, mute and falsify truth?
