are we conforming to a shape, ok the universe shape? why cant we move inbetween these lines, these rules?

i think we can and we do, so the images are usualy a little off a perfect pentagon....owch goes the church.


of beauty? it's a trend...so that brakes any strigent 'ruling' alowing a little off center, not to much mind. after all if we all were to afraif to not conform, we'd be stuck in a globe with corners shape, the world would stop dead.

hmmmm....wos think?

from a sencer to a pc veiw to a print...whats the phi for that then?



cafine helps dunt it lol...not.

hahaha, the rule of thirds is phi, prounsed 'fee' if you take the greek. its looking like a mathamatical number that ties into the structure of the universe. it also ties in to the beauty feature relasionships etc etc..

phi...

Now that's a bit of a stretch. How, exactly?

I can accept that the RoT is an approximation of the Golden Mean which itself is based on the Fibonacci Sequence. I can even accept that the FS is found throughout nature (it turns out to be one of the most space-efficient ways of organising a collection of items). But I find it hard to accept that a ratio that is said to govern what we humans find to be attractive is actually part of the 'structure of the universe', whatever that may be.

Meh the problem is that we view the structure of the universe with a very limited eye - thus its no surprise that if we find laws and common themes within Earths structure that we would also see them at the far larger universal scale. However we have such a tiny view of it all that I think its partly wishful thinking on the scientists side to sound like they know a lot more than they actually do Tongue

So I've been wrong for 50 years thinking it's pronounced "Fie"?

Phi, phi, pho, phum?
22 Jan 2011 10:30PM
well..i supose the pronunciation depends on weather its finite or infinate, because if its the later it dunt work out right and all them beauties are geometricaly rong, right in the middle of our universe lol.

(the greek is fee the others just what every oneelse made of it after, but, alas..i have no concrete evidence to sugest any of it, so phi to it lolol).


i have a theory to the meaning of life, sorry but it doesnt involve and majical destinies for the 'special' people, its as simple as...your born and alive, the meaning of life is to live as long as posable, nothing more nothing less..

and i thought it 32?

if you pour a jug of marbles into a triangle snooker rack you get a pyramid shape eventualy...if you waz a loud of matter into a confined space like a universe...then maybe there is a 'building block' latice formation, limited or goverened by more than mere 3D concepts of self importance lol.. energies been classed as a solid, a solid as energy and back the other way up n round back and through.. dimentions, think were on 11 definate and 14 sort of proven.. and is our galaxy magnolia in colour or green, i forget now, but it is cloudy out.
at the end of the day you have a 'matter' sticking to another matter by an energy, its entirely posable theres only so many 'shapes' that it can hold with in those perameters, out side the planet the gallaxy..the universe?... and perhaps even out side of a finite universe.

so...is that 50mm or 65mm lens?
