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.
