Subject: Special Course on Sacred Geometry
"Sacred Harmony: The Patterns of Nature and the Ways of Knowing"
The ALEXANDRIA journal is sponsoring a three-day summer institute on what the study
of sacred geometry has to contribute to the world today. The course will be taught
by Michael Schneider, author of the recently published  A BEGINNER'S GUIDE TO
(HarperCollins) and myself, editor of  THE PYTHAGOREAN SOURCEBOOK AND LIBRARY and
the ALEXANDRIA journal. --David Fideler -
"Sacred Harmony: The Patterns of Nature and the Ways of Knowing"
OVER the past several centuries with the rise of technical specialization, we have
become very good at "taking the world apart," but how do we put it back together?
Can the study of nature's own harmonies provide an important key?

Nature's patterns of sharing allow living things to function in the best possible
way. Through the use of good proportion, nature's forms embody fitness, beauty, and
patterns of integration that link the part with the whole. The study of these
harmonies and proportional patterns can transform our vision of the world, because
they allow us to see and relate to the world in deeper, more accurate ways. Through
the study of proportion and harmony, we can see that the world is not a collection
of "things," but a pattern of dynamic relationships.

This course will investigate traditional ideas about harmony, the patterns of the
cosmos, and humanity's relationship to the living universe. We will explore the
historical background of these ideas, but will also look at their significance in
today's world. What is the nature and meaning of harmony? What is a cosmos? Is there
an order to the universe? How do the harmonies and patterns of nature arise? And
what is our own relationship to the larger soul of the world?

We will explore the principle of harmony as it expresses itself in nature, art,
music, myth, and science. We will also focus on the proportions and harmonious
patterns embodied in plants, animals, and nature's designs. Why does nature use
these harmonies? What can we learn from them? And how can we approach the world with
a deeper sense of vision and insight?

Fibonacci Numbers and the Golden Section
This is the Home page for the Fibonacci numbers, the Golden section and the Golden string.
Fibonacci Numbers and Nature
Fibonacci and the original problem about rabbits where the series first appears, the family trees of cows and bees,
the golden ratio and the Fibonacci series, the Fibonacci Spiral and sea shell shapes, branching plants, flower petal
and seeds, leaves and petal arrangements, on pineapples and in apples, pine cones and leaf arrangements.
All involve the Fibonacci numbers - and here's how and why.

Why is the Golden section the "best" arrangement?
Continuing the theme of the first page but with specific reference to why the golden section appears in nature.
