Even before Leonardo da Vinci could get out his pen to draw his study of the human body, the Egyptians built their pyramids and temples according to the divine proportion (also called golden ratio or golden section). Either of these – and others discovered in mathematical studies of the natural world – may well be a promising basis for building firmness-commodity-and-delight. Try for yourself at anaface.com. This site studies this golden number Phi and its mathematical cousin, the Fibonacci series both of which have roles in the plot of this murder mystery, and distinguishes between the myth and the math. The description of this golden proportion as the Divine proportion is perhaps fitting because it is seen by many as a door to a deeper understanding of beauty and spirituality in life.
