The Divine Proportion

Truth in ficton is never been more true than in 'The DaVinci Code' by Dan Brown. I'm listening to it via the audio book ( on my iPod and am enjoying every minute of it. At one point they start talking about the the divine proportion and phi. Beyond the description found in the book, I set forth to find out a little bit more about phi, mainly because I've never heard of it before, and if the book was even remotely accurate about phi, I think I should know something more about this fact. I was brought to Mathworld (sounds like fun eh?) where they have a good section on the divine proportion otherwise known as the golden ratio. So if your at all interested, give it a quick read, it may help you understand some things in the book, or perhaps life in general. Also has some good info as well, including a section about Phi and Art, which is a major topic in the book.
