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 rectangle

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.

Golden Ratio

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”.
