    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    The person who titled the video meant to say Phi, and got confused. Pi is used to find the circumference of a circle, it's not the golden ratio.
    But interesting!

    Yes, I suppose I correct people sometimes. Sue me. (<-- reference to some earlier posts) Sorry if it offends you.

    Well, as a lover of correction I suppose you won't mind if I correct you and point out that the title isn't a mistake, but rather a reference to the title of the movie the clip is taken from in which the golden ratio is discussed.

    Not at all. Although the cheeky attitude is somewhat annoying. A lot of people make that mistake, and I didn't watch the whole thing.

    I saw that movie a long time ago. I like the idea of finding number patterns, but it's something someone could easily get lost in, as the movie shows. I hope I don't become crazy like that guy. I hadn't noticed the reference to the Fibonacci sequence. I wonder if you can connect it with pi. I don't remember that being what he was trying to do; I think he was using the Qaballah somehow. If you remember the movie better than I, do inform me.

    Did you know...that a person inside a hula hoop is shaped like the Phi symbol?

    And this

    is a three dimensional Phi symbol?

    This is also the structure of the universe and the Earth btw.

    And so is this:

    which is my illustration of the chakra system.
