1+√5/2 is a ratio that can be satisfied by not only 1/2, but π/2π.
There is no indication of a circle with 1/2, but there is with π/2π.
wtf wrote: Tue Feb 18, 2020 9:05 pm That is, you're multiplying phi by pi/pi; which is also not transcendental. It's 1.
There is a qualitative difference between 1+√5/2 and π+π√5/2π,
the latter serves as a rotating base whereas this is not implied in the former.
Again, mathematicians only see numbers in terms of quantity,
because of their incessant need to reduce everything to some arbitrary '1'.

The point of using π to generate the ratio is to understand
where the first natural '1' comes from in the first place: squaring Φ,
rather than arbitrarily starting with it.

Having a base of 2π is the same as having one golden spiral per π,
the circle within which is necessary to construct the pentagram Φ contains.

You're missing parens. I assume you mean to claim that there is a difference between (1 + sqrt(5))/2 and (pi + pi sqrt(5)) / 2.

But this is no different than claiming 1/2 and 2/4 have a qualitative difference. What difference is that exactly? They're two expressions for the same thing.

A base of 2π is a different context entirely: 2π is describing the geometry of a circle as two half-rotations.
By using 2π as a base, the '1' emerging from the square serves as an arbitrary scalable radius
(whose default is anyway '1') if/when coupled to the same π, thus becomes a function of π,
thus geometric relationships can be described if/when π itself is the base of the expression.

I personally do not care for any mathematics that is also not field geometry:
(astro-)physics uses π for a reason: it has something to do with the universe.
Numbers are arbitrary and mean nothing less whence they naturally arise:
'1' arises from Φ→Φ² thus let it be just that, and let it concern a base of π.

It doesn't make any difference. You are still prescribing a quantitative unit.

Your unit is the circle.
An algebraist's unit is the number.

Field geometry and algebra are the same thing. If you have a fixed point (a unit) you can pivot/tunnel between domains. Do some homework on Brouwer's fixed point theorem.

If you approach both algebra and geometry from the perspective of computation. Everything reduces to a unit. Inversely - everything can be constructed/synthesised from a unit.

This follows directly from Kleene's recursion theorem, and Rogers's fixed-point theorem.

If F is a total computable function, it has a fixed point. Translation: ALL computable functions have a unit.

Your unit (axiom?) is π exists.

Furthermore, finite field geometry reduces to boolean algebra: Geometry of Synthesis.

I think wtf tried to paint the same picture using simpler/more intuitive concepts. Wrapping the number line around the unit-circle is the modulo operation, and when you start dealing with modulo operators you've done a full circle and arrived at the doorstep of generator functions.

The circle need not equal '1', as '1' is generated by squaring Φ.
It is the only number of its kind that can do that.

It is possible to do "algebra" that has nothing to do with our physical universe.
All it takes is one false premise, and the entire geometry fails to it.
When I say field geometry, I mean that agrees with the physical universe.

In this case the unit is per rotation, with 2π being one rotation.
This need not even be given a number: just per rotation.

I appreciate yours and theirs attempts to help but neither you nor wtf can understand the implicit relationship Φ has with π.
It is okay as I see that hardly anyone knows of these relationships, as because Φ exists π exists: they are inseparable.

I found that π as being 3.141... is not precise, though it is extremely close.
The geometric way to derive this relationship is by using a circle of diameter √5
and adding one unit length to it (1 + √5), then taking the midpoint (/2) and taking √Φ
as a base with 4 over it, the number of "quarter-circles" needed to generate the equivalent unit circle:

Image
The flower on the right was made simply by rotating the golden spiral 180-degrees
and doubling the result each time, three times: 1→2→4→8, thus '9' acts as the center.

You aren't hearing me (but do notice that you are using the word "generated" - and I pointed you to Generators in Number theory).

The English sentence "1 is generated by squaring Φ" translates to the Mathematical sentence: Φ*Φ = 1

IF Φ*Φ = 1
then √1 = √Φ*Φ
Therefore: 1 = Φ

But BY DEFINITION Φ = (1 + √5)/2

Nothing "needs equal 1". It's an axiom. You can equate anything to 1. That's what a "unit" is!

You can even equate: (1 + √5)/2 = 1
You totally can! But then you are re-defining the standard meanings of the Mathematical operators.
And you are totally allowed to do that (but you need to shift your perspective to higher order Lambda calculus/computational perspective and invent new operators)

Man is the measure of all things (said Protagoras)
YOU are the One (said Morpheus to Neo).
YOU decide what "equates to 1" (Said Skepdick)

The unit-circle is: x*x + y*y = 1
The unit-Φ is: Φ*Φ = 1
The unit-Human is: Human = 1

This trick (of equating things to 1) goes back as far as Eudoxus of Cnidus. It's the only way we know how to "prove things" - we only prove things in terms of other things we already accept.

You can use it to model the universe in terms of motion, as

The other way around: circles from integers. The integers determine how the circles interact to produce what form.
You can plot an equation on any math site and apply cos-theta and just move up in .1 increments and see
how the forms spiral and split to make geometric forms. It is the same geometry "atoms" are comprised of,
which are just configurations of motion.

√5 = diagonal between corners of two unit squares inside circle

"Squaring of Φ" means Φ*Φ to me (a.k.a Φ^2). So "allow '1' to be exactly where it comes from: the squaring of Φ."

This is backwards. It should read "the only argument for subjectivity is the fear of realism."
People are afraid of what they do not want to be real/unreal, such as a "believer" who fears their "belief" is false.
This is the case of "belief"-based ideologies, which is where fear comes from: fearing the unreality of ones own "belief".

I am not afraid of challenging mainstream views if/because I know where they are faulty, and why.
That is what knowledge serves towards: knowing all *not* to simply "believe".
However knowledge is not the be-all end-all: consciousness prevails over it.

Only a sound consciousness can resolutely and inductively attain what the true nature of reality is / is not.

You're upside-down again: any particular body in/of of the physical universe
is some displacement(s) from '1' being unity over itself.
In order for it to be physical, it needs a displacement(s).
Therefor light as c = 1 is light that is not "displaced" from anything
but all is displaced from it. This is true both physically and metaphysically,
as any universal "geometry" must satisfy both.

Nature is extremely simple: one geometric Φ, one transcendental π.
Calculating the real value of π requires knowing it comes from Φ.

Mainstream academia does not know π is a feature of Φ thus can be found directly, and thus is only "approximated" by them (3.141...).
It is still transcendental but the relationship can be known to the same precision (if not now more) than the Egyptians (π = 4/√Φ = 3.144...)
who built the Giza plateau / pyramids. It is the exact same geometry: knowledge of how π and Φ share in one another as curve-and-line.

It is called conscience - to ask questions (ie. who/what/where/why/when/how, if to, if not to etc.) and altruistically seek the answer.
The quality of the conscience will always reflect the quality of the question(s) it can generate/address.
If you ask questions, and have a true desire to know, the "universe" may relatively align itself to the inquiry over time.
If you don't ask questions, and have no desire to know, the universe lets you do whatever, because that is how "choice" works.

Present-day mathematics attempting to describe this geometry is certainly constructed by humans.
However Φ and π is not constructed by humans. The latter is approximated by humans, but that is why
they can never get astronomical calculations precise yet: they have the wrong value of π knowing not
it is naturally coupled to Φ. This humanity is very devolved by comparison to earlier civilizations.

Technology is nice, but not when it causes suffering/death. Not a problem with the technology, but with humans using it.

Φ generates the circle whose diameter is √5, hence (1+√5)/2.
The +1 adds one unit length to the to √5, and the mid-point
coincides with a unit circle which fits perfectly in a unit square.

Because four circumferences are needed to make the full circle,
π becomes a function of 4/√Φ which is 3.144... this is the true π.

The approximations based on billions of triangles of 3.141 is demonstrative
of humanity's ignorance of what π even is, let alone where it really comes from.

Therefor any algebra that misses this relation is invariably severed from the reality.
The approximation is still there, and it is accurate enough to go unnoticed
but still ultimately incorrect. The bigger problem is humanity suffering to understand
the relationship between π and Φ because it relates to the fabric of the universe:
curve and line,
likeness and image,
woman and man,
female and male
etc.

All of this symmetry is duly reflected in geometry: π and Φ.
Skepdick wrote: Thu Feb 20, 2020 5:59 pm In respect to what?
Itself, in relation to any given rotating base over time.
The entire function ultimately concerns c = 1 as a displacement(s) therefrom.

Because space and time are multiplicative reciprocals, s³/t implies s/t³.

Time also has 3 dimensions, however I am not going to get into that as
General Relativity has just retarded humanity too much to not see this.

In the same way Φ relates to the addition of '1' to itself as a function of its own square,
space and time obey an inverse square law which is directly related, though mainstream physics
either does not know the relationship or does not tell people, as it essentially destroys
a lot of the General Relativity / Quantum / Religions businesses on the planet.
Skepdick wrote: Thu Feb 20, 2020 5:59 pm 3 equidistant points where? On the same circle? In a co-domain?
On the perimeter of the circle whose diameter is √5.
Because Φ implies π (and vice versa) all is in relation to the same.
Skepdick wrote: Thu Feb 20, 2020 5:59 pm Because you said π is an approximation. So is √5.
It need not be approximated, it can be left as an irrational.
Approximating irrationals is like trying to turn a curve into a line.

4/√Φ is not an approximation of π,
it is exactly π if/when left in this form
relative to all else concerning it.

This is where the confusion is.
The diameter of the circle must be √5 because '1' is in relation to it.
By taking the diameter of √5, adding the '1' such to have a line (1+√5),
finding the half-way point of this line (equivalent: /2)
reveals the relevant unit circle inside a unit square
contained within the circle whose diameter is √5.

The above sentence is FALSE.

Are you sure you don't mean: f(Φ*Φ) = Φ + 1 ?

Jeez Louise man, that's its defining property. Of course it's true. Congrats on finding a Wolfram bug but that's all you did. Take phi = (1 + sqrt(5)) / 2 and work it out by hand. Here, I'll do it for you.

phi^2 = ((1 + sqrt(5))/2)^2 = (1 + 5 + 2 sqrt(5)) / 4

= (6 + 2 sqrt(5)) / 4 = (3 + sqrt(5)) / 2 and

phi + 1 = (1 + sqrt(5) / 2) + 1 = (1 + sqrt(5)) / 2 + 2/2 = (3 + sqrt(5)) / 2

so the left and right sides are equal. It's all explained right here.

What's most likely going on is that Wolfram is distinguishing between lower-case phi and upper case phi. That's also explained in the Wiki article.

The "defining property" is to re-define phi?

And just a few days ago you were giving me shit on not using "standard definitions"...

Perhaps the representation is getting in your way?

Φ*Φ = Φ + 1

is really

lhs(Φ) = Φ*Φ
rhs(Φ) = Φ + 1
lhs(Φ) = rhs(Φ)

https://repl.it/repls/DentalPrettyStrategy

Code: Select all

from math import sqrt

lhs = lambda phi: phi*phi
rhs = lambda phi: phi + 1

phi = float(( 1 + sqrt(5)/2))

assert lhs(phi) == rhs(phi)
Obviously that's true...

which would've been the same as saying x^2 - x = 1

The solution to which is Φ

Can it be that you not only failed ninth grade high school algebra, but also don't know that this is NOT how you test for floating point equality? Can it possibly be true that you were unable to follow the simple chain of equalities I wrote down? And that you actually have no idea how to test floats for equality? Or read a Wiki page? You're really an idiot.
