Inzicht in het bestaan en de werking van Universele Wetten en de Gulden Snede

Ik was heel nieuwsgierig naar dit boek, omdat De Gulden Snede er in uitgelegd wordt. Zelf heb ik daar al wel over gelezen, maar Marja de Vries legt het zeer goed uit, zodat ik er toch weer van geleerd heb. Phi en de Fibonacci- reeks werd nog duidelijker voor me en de verhoudingen in de natuur. Bijvoorbeeld ook, dat de verhouding onderdruk / bovendruk van de bloeddruk het meest optimaal is met de verhouding Phi, dus 1,61

“In short, the idea dawns that the one universal principle which possibly ... between force and structure, the embodiment of the Principle of Least Action and the (unknown) force, which in mathematics is known as the attractor which pulls ... in the direction of the most optimal and relatively stable self-organized criticality, could very well be the Golden Ratio dynamic. the universal principle which as the balance between finiteness and infinity, stability and flexibility underlies self-similar fractal forms emerging at the 'edge of chaos' indeed seems to be the Golden Ratio Spiral.” 0 likes
“The Golden Ratio defines the squaring of a circle. Stated in mathematical terms, this says: Given a square of known perimeter, create a circle of equal circumference. According to some, in ancient Egypt, this mathematical mystery was encoded in the measurements of the Great Pyramid of Giza.” 0 likes
