When the smaller number of this pattern is divided into the larger number adjacent to it, the ratio will be approximately 1.618; if the larger one adjacent to it divides the smaller number, the ratio is very close to 0.618.
This ratio is the most efficient of similar series of numbers.
Jesus showed the way (the “wayshower”) for all to realize Truth, which is God. After that which we call "death," spiritual development toward Truth continues until all evil, or "error," destroys itself.
Origin of Universe and Life The universe and humans are reflections of God's likeness and image, which is Spirit--without beginning or end. Heaven and hell are not places, but states of consciousness that continue after death.
Illusions, or delusions, of a material world and material body result from error in thought and ignorance of the true and only nature of reality, which is spiritual. "Heaven" is the self-made eternal bliss of realizing oneness with God. God is all that is real and God is completely good; therefore, good is real and evil is an illusion/delusion.
"Hell" is the self-made anguish of believing in pain and death. The only power evil has is to destroy itself; attempts to destroy good naturally result in punishment for the evildoer. Not realizing one's true nature as spirit results in selfishness, which can lead to error and disharmony.
Homosexuality is often regarded negatively, a belief that requires healing through Christian Science practices--the Mother Church has not announced opposition to this view.
Each succeeding number is the sum of the two preceding numbers.
As one realizes the error of belief in the reality of suffering and evil, these images of thought impressed upon the mortal mind can be altered, thus banishing sickness, death, and sin--testimony to the power of faith in God, of Mind over matter.
Undeserved Suffering Though appearing real, suffering (and illness) is a false belief or error of mortal thought.
Art forms can be either of static or dynamic symmetry. Not only do we discover this pattern in leaf arrangements, but it is also commonly found in the arrangement of many flower petals.
In static symmetry the lines have definite measurements whereas in dynamic symmetry it is the proportioning of the areas that is given emphasis. Examples: a lily has3 petals, yellow violet 5, delphinium 8, mayweed 13, aster 21, pyrethrum 34, helenium 55, and michaelmas daisy 89.
