# What are your thoughts with regards to the "golden ratio"?

How much to you believe it impacts our society and in what areas?

1.618. The ratio is used in almost everything you see advertised. It applies to proportions. It is what is defined as pleasing to the eye. For example a modeling agency will use it to determine how good looking you are, or an ad agency will use it make a picture in perfect proportion to draw your eyes exactly where they want.

Yes as in mathematics.

• The golden ratio has been around since ancient times, in fact the geek statues are proof of it. In the early 1900s a German strong man took the measurements given by the golden ratio. And sculpted his body exactly according to them and when he was done he was the living version of one of those statues. He looked exactly like them and his body was perfectly aligned with the golden ratio.

The golden ratio has nothing to do with beauty alone but perfection and placement as well as what is most pleasing to the eye. but for the human body it's physical perfection, its used in art as well to determine the perfect settings for separate items within a painting to make to it most pleasing to the eye, its used in many other things as well.
