"I embrace my desire to
Feel the rhythm, to feel connected
Enough to step aside and weep like a widow
To feel inspired, to fathom the power,
To witness the beauty, to bathe in the fountain,
To swing on the spiral
Of our divinity and still be a human."

-Tool, Lateralus

The Golden Spiral, also known as the golden section, golden mean, golden ratio and Fibonacci spiral. The Fibonacci spiral approximates the golden spiral using quarter-circle arcs inscribed in squares of integer Fibonacci-number side, shown for square sizes 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, and 34.

According to astrophysicist and mathematics popularizer Mario Livio, since the publication of Luca Pacioli's Divina Proportione in 1509, when with Pacioli's book, the Golden Ratio started to become available to artists in theoretical treatises that were not overly mathematical, that they could actually use, many artists and architects have been fascinated by the presumption that the golden rectangle is considered aesthetically pleasing. And the proportions of the golden rectangle have been observed in works predating Pacioli's publication.
