The long weekend is looming on the horizon, calling and waiting. But I have become wary of its deception. It entices and charms me but I am fully aware of its betrayal. After all, why would it behave differently than any of its predecessors? Ohhh, how I dream and make plans inolving just the two of us…..only if it knew.
They all promise the same thing and do they bother to deliver? NO!! They give hope and a false sense of security, only to pull out the rug from underneath at the last moment. Thats how its always been, since grade school to now. But no more…..
…..no more will I look forward to a holiday to catch up on studies nor finish any projects! I’m going in without any elaborate plans for maybe that might yield a more productive holiday.
I want to talk about another important issue but sadly, time permits not. But insha Allah my next blog shall be dedicated to it.
Following is an excerpt from the The Da Vinci Code (with some editing to make sense of it). Next blog, insha Allah, more excerpts from the book.
“The PHI was derived from the Fibonacci sequence–a progression famous not only because the sum of adjacent terms equaled the next term, but because the quotients of adjacent terms possessed the astonishing property of approaching the number 1.618–PHI!
Depsite PHI’s seemingly mystical mathematical origins, the truly mind-boggling aspect of PHI was its role as a fundamental building block in nature. Plants, animals, and even huma beings all possessed dimensional properties that adhered with eerie exactitude to the ratio of PHI to 1.
Ever study the relationship between females and males in a honeybee community? Did you know that if you divide the number of female bees by the number of male bees in any beehive in the world, you always get the same number? PHI!!
Sunflower seeds grow in opposing spirals. Can you guess the ratio of each rotation’s diameter to the next? BINGO!!
What do sprialed pinecone petals, leaf arrangement on plant stalks, insect segmentation all have in common? You guessed it!
Want more examples?? Measure the distance from your shoulder to your fingertips, and then divide it by the distance from your elbow to your fingertips. Hip to floor divided by knee to floor. PHI again. Finger joints. Toes. Spinal divisions. PHI. PHI. PHI. My friends, each of you is a walking tribute to the Divine Proportion.”
As one of my friends said, “…..and then they claim that everything was created by a mere coincidence.”
