The “Golden Ratio” is but one of many log-periodic ratios in use. TV antennas (the old ones that got put on the roof) also are log-periodic. Mario Livio wrote a book about this, and I tend to agree with his assessment- “The Golden Ratio is a product of humanly invented geometry”. We are a product of our surroundings, having adapted to it to survive. I think that the mathematics made us, and we discover it as we learn more…maybe we “co-evolved”.
