The Math of Beauty & Golden Ratio

They say mathematics is in everything. There is a beautiful speech nearing the end of the diluted biopic of famous mathematician John Nash, “A Beautiful Mind”. It goes, “And I have made the most important discovery of my career, the most important discovery of my life: It is only in the mysterious equations of love that any logic or reasons can be found.”

However, I too can say mathematics is in everything. Nature itself is following an unknown formula. Have you heard about Fibonacci series? Each number of this series is the sum of the previous two, starting from 0, 1. The specialty is; these numbers are present in almost everything in the nature. Number of branches of a tree, number of seed heads, pattern of animal fights, number of limbs etc. and etc.

The one very important application of Fibonacci series by nature is the ‘golden ratio’. Have you ever wondered why mirrors, portraits and doors are mostly rectangle but not square? This is because of aesthetic beauty and that aesthetic beauty is supplied by the golden ratio; in these mentioned cases the ratio of length to breadth.

Obviously if the aspect of human body is on this golden ratio, it will be aesthetic. This is exactly the math behind sex appeal, beauty and cuteness. Let me finish with the HCR (Hip Chest Ratio). If your HCR is golden, your body will be aesthetic and an eye candy for everyone. No wonder ladies are chasing slim waist and wide chest. They are actually following nature’s order.
