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.

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?

Do words speak for themselves in argument?

No. Words do not speak for themselves. So, what do words do? Words support or refute an argument or theory.

Reading and Digestion

The next time you read something, consider Edmund Burke’s observation:

‘To read without reflecting is like eating without digesting.’

Facts versus Opinions

“You’re entitled to your own opinions. You’re not entitled to your own facts.”
