The Golden Proportion, also called the Golden Mean, is a unique transcendental proportion that divides a oneness or unity into a creative duality through a particular geometric relationship of two terms, a and b. The Golden Proportion written in a sentence would be-a is to b as b is to (a+b), where a is the smaller term, b is the larger term, and (a+b) as the sum of the two terms, constitutes a wholeness. The spiritual nature of the Golden Proportion or Golden Section, was well known to the ancients, and was depicted by the Greek letter phi, a circle with a slash through it.
