## 8 Golden Ratio Spirals

This geometric configuration starts with lines ab **.5** + be **√1.25** = ae **ϕ**

Measurements for ae = ϕ,
ge = .5, ag = √(ϕ + 1.25)

Golden Rectangles Construction:

Draw guide lines A and B parallel to the square’s external margins, and connect them to the

small circled junction points. In this 2-dimensional diagram there are 8 Golden ratio spirals.

The point to which all golden rectangles converge is sometimes called the “Eye of God”.

Here 8 golden rectangles and their converging points form a circle, and since this represents

one face of a three-dimensional cube, there are 48 golden rectangles in total.

**(C + R) / C = ϕ + 1 **__and__** D / R = √ (√5 + 3) **__and__** √ (√5 + 3) / ϕ = √2**

These are a few examples of interesting ratios within this diagram.

Measurements and ratios that occur in this geometric drawing, show that there is

one arithmetical number that is prominent, and that number is **5**.

In Biblical scripture the number 5 symbolizes “Grace”.
