We assume that another intelligence will make itself known to us through our latest technology (TV and radio waves) and that their signal will use a non-random numerical sequence such as prime numbers:

1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29 . . .

But what if the other intelligence we seek is way beyond our technology?   What if we've got the wrong number?

Is there another sign we
should be paying attention to?

Take a line and divide it so that the ratio of the large piece (B) to the whole line (A) is the same as the ratio as the small piece (C) to the large piece (B):

Sectioning a line to form the Golden Section


So A is 161.8% of B and B is 161.8% of C.

The Greeks knew
this as the
Golden Section

The Renaissance artists
knew this as the
Divine Proportion

The Parthenon

and used it for beauty
and balance in the
design of architecture

"The Last Supper" by Leonardo Da Vinci

and used it for beauty
and balance in the
design of art

But there's something rather incredible about this proportion:

It was used to design you:
Your hands, face and body!

Simple coincidence?   Natural phenomenon?  Before you decide, consider this:

In the 12th century, Leonardo Fibonacci discovered an incredible mathematical relationship behind this seemingly simple proportion. It's based on a simple series of numbers, with each new number being the sum of the two before it.

0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89 . . .

The ratio of each number to the one before it converges on exactly the same number (1.6180339...) as the Golden Section and Divine Proportion.  But that is just the beginning to the mathematical mysteries of this number.

Could this be a sign from,
and the signature of, your Creator?
