Golden Number

R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz
"The Golden Number does not act solely as a function of an ideal proportion, but serves as the basis for a philosophy that makes the connection between the metaphysical state and the physical state. It is in their connection that the Golden Number's "sacred" character consists. Furthermore, the human body develops in terms of this number. [R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz, The Temple in Man, page 66]

“The Golden Number is a mathematical definition of a proportional function which all of nature obeys, whether it be a mollusk shell, the leaves of plants, the proportions of the animal body, the human skeleton, or the ages of growth in man.” [R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz]
