Mathematical Love is Found in the Golden Section

Mathematical Love is More Prevalent Than You Think. The Egyptian and Hebrew civilizations placed the mathematics of love in their buildings. However for this particular blog, I will consider how the key word expresses mathematical love with the Hebrew language.

The Hebrew verb for “Love” is  אָהַב (Ahav).  The three letter verbal root for love is spelled Alef (אָ), which is also the symbol for number 1; Hei (הַ) which is also the symbol for number  5; and Veis (ב), which is also the symbol for number 2. The Hebrew verb for love has the same factors as this ratio.  The phi of natural growth from people to galaxies uses the love numbers as  phi= (√5 + 1) / 2. This equal 1.618… to 1. The 3 factors for love and phi are the same. Here are the first few of the series. As the numbers grow by successive addition, as 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55… the larger divided by the smaller gets closer and closer to phi. Phi is an infinitely large number that cannot be reached. It is just like people. We can strive for perfection but are never quite able to reach it.

In Hebrew, to make “love” into a noun,  the letter   “hei” is added  at the end three letter verb. Keep in mind that in Hebrew the letter on the right is the 1st letter. The language is written backwards from English. Therefore, the letter that ends the noun is on the extreme left. אַהֲבָה   Hei (הַ), like before, is also the symbol for number  5.  Thus we have another  5  to add to the 8 of the verb. 5 + 8   = 13. Look at the Fibonacci series just given above: All three: 5,8 and 13  are members of the series.

A closing note:  Phi (uppercase Φ, lowercase Greek Phi normal.svg or Greek phi Didot.svgAncient Greekϕεῖpheî[pʰé͜e]; modern Greekφιfi[fi]; English: /f/[1]) is the 21st letter of the Greek alphabet. Note, phi is the 21st letter of the Greek alphabet. It just so happens that #21 is the 8th number in the Fibonacci series. Eight is also a Fibonacci number.
