Johannes Kepler about the Divine Proportion

Geometry has two great treasures: one is the theorem of Pythagoras, the other the division of a line into mean and extreme ratio. The first we may compare to a mass of gold, the second we may call a precious jewel.

Bertrand Russell about Mathematics

Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty – a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture, without appeal to any part of our weaker nature, without the gorgeous trappings of painting or music, yet sublimely pure, and capable of a stern perfection such as only the greatest art can show. The true spirit of delight, the exaltation, the sense of being more than Man, which is the touchstone of the highest excellence, is to be found in mathematics as surely as poetry.

Fig: A distinctive feature of this shape is that when a square section is removed, the remainder is another golden rectangle; that is, with the same aspect ratio as the first. Square removal can be repeated infinitely. . . Fig: Corresponding corners of the squares form an infinite sequence of points on the golden spiral, the unique logarithmic spiral with this property.

Fig1: The relationship of the sides of the pentagon, and also the tiles, is ϕ, 1, and 1/ϕ.

Fig: Rectangles superimposed on the Mona Lisa demonstrating golden ratio at work. In Mona Lisa, the mismatch between the left and right backgrounds creates the illusion of perspective and depth. A golden rectangle whose base extends from her right wrist to her left elbow and reaches the very top of her head can be subdivided into smaller golden rectangles to produce a golden spiral. The edges of the new rectangles come to intersect the focal points of Mona Lisa: chin, eye, nose, and upturned corner of her mouth. The overall shape of the woman is a triangle with her arms as the base and her head as the tip, drawing attention to her face. Oleg Artamonov
