Anneka Lanham - 7S The Golden Ratio How is The Golden Ratio
Related to Poetry? A poem with the Golden Ratio in it should have a minimum of six lines but could have more. In the poem, the first two - three lines have one word in it as the previous number is one. Throughout the poem, the words in the lines get bigger in numbers. Explanation The Golden Ratio The Golden Ratio - also known as The Golden number, the Golden section and more - is used in many forms of art, poetry, advertisement, architecture and music. It is called the 'Golden' Ratio because the word 'golden' is said to be attractive and has many uses. It is used in the most common form - artwork - as shown. It is basically a perfect form of one of the subjects listed above, it is perfectly lined poetry, perfectly shaped artwork, perfectly noted music and perfectly measured buildings. The Golden Ratio Explained The Great Pyramid Of Giza The Golden Ratio in The Great Pyramid Of Giza The Golden Ratio is clearly used in The Great Pyramid Of Giza, also known as the Pyramid of Cheops and the Pyramid of Khufu. It is impeccably shaped and measured (in Royal Cubits above). It a mystery of how it was measured so perfectly, let alone built, but it still proves to be made with the Golden Ratio. It has exact shapes of triangles and the measurements are all equal. There is a perfectly shaped right angle triangle in the middle to the side on every angle of the triangle. Acting like a base angle. The Golden Ratio in The Great Pyramid Of Giza Inspiration Comes (Fibonacci)
1 I
1 am
2 sitting
3 quietly,
5 listening for the
8 quiet noises in the darkness,
13 ghostly images flying between the tall pine trees,
21 illusion created by the mind, made by shadows, the brain playing tricks on itself.
34 It sits there, the raven, black as night, looking at me with its dark eyes in the dark night. Inspiration comes. Words form in my head. Evermore.
-Jim T. Henriksen http://www.goldennumber.net/poetry/ REFERENCES The Golden Ratio Related to Poetry Poetry with the Golden Ratio in it uses Fibonacci. Fibonacci is a non-rhyming style of poetry that uses Fibonacci numbers in the line count. (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144). Each subsequent number being the sum of the previous two. Each line has the number of words of the previous line number. This makes it obviously very difficult to write this type of poetry.

Ratio? I think the Egyptians did know that they were using the Golden Ratio in their pyramids and buildings or if not, a very similar formula. This is because back then things were much more simpler, so when they were building the pyramids, they must have used shapes measured with trees or sticks to measure the exact length, width, height and volume of what they were building. I also think that they might have used the shape of what they were building (pyramid - Triangle/Cone) many times in what they were building like in the pyramids, Triangles and Cones are shown a few times throughout the measurement.
If this method was not used, I think it must have been something very similar like the shape method mentioned above. It could have been something we haven't yet discovered. Did the Egyptians know that they were using the Golden Ratio?
