      Mystery of golden ratio explained
      EurekAlert [USA], 21-Dec-2009

      The Egyptians supposedly used it to guide the construction the Pyramids.
      The architecture of ancient Athens is thought to have been based on it.
      Fictional Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon tried to unravel its
      mysteries in the novel The Da Vinci Code. "It" is the golden ratio, a
      geometric proportion that has been theorized to be the most
      aesthetically pleasing to the eye and has been the root of countless
      mysteries over the centuries. Now, a Duke University engineer has found
      it to be a compelling springboard to unify vision, thought and movement
      under a single law of nature's design. Adrian Bejan, professor of
      mechanical engineering at Duke's Pratt School of Engineering, thinks he
      knows why the golden ratio pops up everywhere: the eyes scan an image
      the fastest when it is shaped as a golden-ratio rectangle.
