The golden ratio is a number that is often seen in simple shapes and figures. It is denoted as phi or as 1.618.

Golden ratio relates to the Fibonacci Sequence because when dividing backwards with the Fibonnacci Sequence you will get closer and closer to 1.618. Also when, using the Fibonacci sequence you will end up with a golden rectangle.

Golden ratio in the human body

Golden Ratio

Eyes:1. Equal spacing in the inner and outer edges of the eyes.2.Spaces between eyes and the eye whites are in the golden proportion.3. Eyes form a golden rectangle.

Teeth1.618:Form a golden rectangle.

Ear:Has Fibonacci Sequence formed in ear. Helps hearing better. Also, the ear has phi proportions in the spiral of the ear.

Fibonacci's Spiral

The face is based of the golden ratio. From the top of the head to the bottom of the chin, it should be 16.8 inches on average. This is a phi proportion. People with longer heads tend to have breathing problems and people with short heads tend to have jaw problems and headaches. There are 5 openings on the face. That is a Fibonacci number.

The Heart: - The aorta has golden ratio proportions that helps give the heart optimum pump structure.- The EKG pattern of the human heartbeat is in a phi relationship.

Heart Rhythm

DNA:- DNA spirals have phi proportions- The DNA molecule measures 34 angstroms long by 21 angtroms wide for each cycle in the double helix.

Hands:2 hands, 5 digits, and 8 fingers that are composed of 3 sectionsFeet: 5 toes

The human body is based on patterns of 5

Arms:- The ratio of your forearm to your hand is 1.618 or the golden ratio.

Body Temperature: - If you take 0.618 (phi proportion) of 37ºC which is average human body temperature, you get 23ºC or 73ºF which is "perfect room tmperature"
