Visions of the golden ratio
In the New Testament.
My experience with the Loaves and Fishes Puzzle and also with the Sower’s Puzzle, both elsewhere on this blog, lead me to experience the Gospel in a new way and to view it as an integrated whole meant to be taken in its entirety.
If you don’t read all four books of the Gospel together to combine the numbers in the “Loaves and Fishes” stories, then you won’t get the golden ratio to three decimal places the way I did. Likewise, if you don’t combine the numbers scattered among the three different versions of the “Parable of the Sower” in three books, then you won’t uncover the golden ratio the way I did.
In light of these two number sets, each based in multiple books, each yielding a close approximation of the golden ratio, I will have to re-think every theory I’ve ever heard about who wrote the Gospel and how. Certain parts, at least those holding math puzzles, seem likely to have been written by one person or edited by one person.
What on earth was in the mind of this person who apparently constructed at least some portion of the Jesus story around a contiguous framework of numbers housed in separate books?
Four quadrants combine to make a whole
Of course, I realize that while I can construct what I consider to be valid puzzles and solutions from Gospel numbers, there is no way (yet) to know what was intended by the author(s).
By the way, my theory about a monogrammed Number of the beast also points to the golden ratio.
In solving Gospel puzzles I used only simple arithmetic and straightforward methods. I assume that if there are puzzles, the author wants us to find them and solve them – eventually. They would not be overly difficult or complex.
