How to Find Perfection

 “The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science.”  –Albert Einstein (1879-1955).

If you want to draw a beautiful face, paint a gorgeous work of art, or build an exquisite piece of architecture, simply use the Golden Mean.

In the 1970s, while studying Fine Arts, I first learned about the Golden Mean.  This is a ratio of 1:1.618 that is used by artists to structure works of art mathematically to become visually more appealing to the human eye than any other possible structure.  This Golden Ratio divides everything roughly in thirds.  It  exists everywhere in nature and has been observed in pretty much everything including the rings of a snail shell, the measurements of the human body, DNA, and even the rings in spirals of galaxies.  All the natural world can be divided into the exact same mathematical ratio of 1:1.68.  For example, if you measured yourself from the floor to your navel, then measured from your navel to the top of your head, the ratio would be about 1:1.68.

Science Daily reported on (Jan7, 2010) that researchers for the first time measured a nanoscale symmetry hidden in solid state matter showing the exact same attributes as this famous Golden Ratio from art and architecture.  In March 18, 2010, Physicist, Ian Affleck, Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of British Columbia, Canada also found that the golden ratio was evident in solid state physics in a magnet.

The Golden Mean is considered a “divine mathematical proportion” and is therefore viewed as the thumb print or signature of God.  When people talk about God’s perfection, you don’t have to look far to find it.  It’s in your very DNA.
