The Golden Ratio Renaissance ~ Transcript of Matthew Cross’ TEDxEast talk at the New York Times building in NYC, May 11, 2012:

I’m here to share a secret I learned at age 13 which transformed my life, my work as a Fortune 100 strategist; it catalyzed my self-education. This golden key to our genius and our connection is the Golden Ratio.

Also known as Phi, the Divine Proportion, the Golden Mean, it’s Nature’s perfect proportion for bringing parts together into a greater whole. It manifests as the ratio 1.618 to 1, in the golden rectangle, the golden spiral and star; in the ratio between the numbers in the Fibonacci Sequence [0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89...]

The Golden Ratio guides matter and the movement of energy in the Universe, from the golden spirals of galaxies, to hurricanes, ocean waves, flower petals and nautilus shells. It is the Pattern of Life.

Atoms dancing in golden spirals, the geometry of our DNA; the proportions of our body; our golden spiral heartbeat; everywhere we find the Golden Ratio at play. It’s the proportion of beauty, which can be enhanced in our face with the Golden Ratio eyebrow sculpting system developed by Anastasia of Beverly Hills. It’s present in structures ancient and modern; that’s [New York City's] Grand Central Station, lower left.

Geniuses from Da Vinci to Einstein were fascinated by the Golden Ratio; it’s present in the works of Steve Jobs and team Apple; the music of the Beatles, Mozart’s symphonies and the greatest video of all time, Michael Jackson’s Thriller. Plays a key role in The Da Vinci Code, Keifer Sutherland’s new series Touch, and, in the current worldwide smash single, Gotye and Kimbra’s Somebody That I Used To Know.

Everyone carries a golden rectangle in their wallet; it’s used in stock market forecasting in the Elliott Wave and in the millionaire’s map abundance growth system; Twitter and many great web sites use it as a constant in their design; it’s found throughout the world in great art; to take great pictures with a Da Vinci touch, download the free app Camera Awesome—it’s awesome!

It’s Nature’s Secret Nutrient for health and longevity. Peak performance is an outcome; that’s me after winning a race a few weeks ago, using the Fibonacci-based training system.

It is a constant in our connection with one another, and with all life.
I’ll close with a quote from William Blake: To see a world in a grain of sand and a heaven in a wildflower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.

Each of us holds an infinity of wisdom, compassion, and grace in the palms of our Golden Ratio hands. Now that you know the secret of this universal genius and connection activation factor, what gifts, what treasures will you discover and share to light the world, for one and all?

Thank you.
