Matthew Cross and The Golden Ratio/Divine Code
by Matthew Cross
Editor's Note from Sophia Hansen: The Golden Ratio is best summed up by Matthew Cross himself, "...the ultimate integrative learning principle. It unites every discipline under (and above) the sun: Nature, humanity, science, religion, design, medicine, health, beauty, biology, astronomy, quantum physics, life science, psychology, peak performance, poetry, art, music, architecture, design… the list is as infinite as one’s imagination—and beyond." Mr. Cross' aptly articulates the significance of this very significant principle found in all of Life and leaves you wanting to know more.
There is a code that lies both within and without. This secret yet open code points the way to your purpose, your happiness and your greatness… it goes by the name of The Golden Ratio/Divine Code.
I was 13 when I first learned of the Golden Ratio, known variously throughout the ages as the Divine Proportion/Ratio and Golden Mean/Section. My co-author Robert Friedman, M.D. and I have added the term Divine Code to this lexicon, our inclusive term integrating the primary facets of this Universal principle for growth, unity, success and enlightenment:
* The Golden Ratio 1:1.618…
* The Golden Rectangle;
* The Golden Star;
* The Golden Triangle;
* The Golden Spiral;
* The infinite Fibonacci Sequence
0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610…
These six facets, which we refer to collectively as the Divine Code, guide the micro/macro structure and movement of everything in the Universe. From DNA to the proportions of all living things to Nature’s principle for efficient movement, symmetry and beauty to the macro latticework of the cosmos, we find woven the golden thread of the Divine Code. In short, it is the design and operating code of Nature, humanity and the Universe. This is why all people gravitate towards and are inspired by the Divine Code, whether they are aware of it or not. It is everywhere within and without us. It is said that if God/The Great Spirit/Nature had a design code for all creation, the Divine Code would have to be it. Yet the Code is both inclusive of and transcends all religions and all philosophies. It is the door to the infinite, to our greatest questions: Who am I? Where am I from? Where am I going? What is Life?
The ONE canon of wisdom that has most intrigued me in my life thus far? The Divine Code, hands down. A ubiquitous Code of efficiency and beauty that governs the Universe? Blueprint for the growth of life itself? Embodied in structures from the Great Pyramid to the Parthenon to the Empire State Building? Formula of fascination for history’s greatest geniuses, from Plato to Da Vinci—and a formative inspiration for Einstein? A unity principle for the divine fusion of heaven, earth and man? The Secret Code for Great Success? I felt like I had discovered a veritable Ark of the Covenant with the Holy Grail inside! It was as if knowledge of the Divine Code was somehow an entry code into an ancient mystery school that held the secrets of the Universe and the answers to all questions.
As Robert and I delved deeper, we noticed an intriguing pattern emerge: history’s greatest movers, shakers and influencers all have the Divine Code in common. The list of geniuses is as diverse as it is intriguing—and endless: Plato, Pythagoras, Leonardo Fibonacci, Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Kepler, Newton, Blake, Thomas Jefferson, Einstein, Frank Lloyd Wright, Buckminster Fuller, Isaac Asimov, The Beatles, Michael Jackson, Apple Inc. founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, Anastasia Soare, Dr. Mehmet Oz… The implication was staggering: hidden in plain sight is perhaps the greatest Genius Activation Principle available to mankind. Best of all, it was (and is) not necessary to “know it all” about the Divine Code in order to appreciate and apply its power. Exposure to even the smallest part or fractal of the Code seems to start a chain reaction, up an infinite Golden Spiral of wonder, genius activation and growth. In our research, we also found that virtually all writings on the Golden Ratio skipped a vital missing link: how to practically access and apply it in one’s life. Thus began a decade-long journey to create the first book in history for the comprehensive, practical application of the Divine Code, along with the first book utilizing its profound power to enhance health and longevity.
The Divine Code is the ultimate integrative learning principle. It unites every discipline under (and above) the sun: Nature, humanity, science, religion, design, medicine, health, beauty, biology, astronomy, quantum physics, life science, psychology, peak performance, poetry, art, music, architecture, design… the list is as infinite as one’s imagination—and beyond. I’ve found endless inspiration through knowledge and application of the Golden Ratio/Divine Code. My mission and passion is to share the magic of this universal design code for success with you. In my experience, knowledge and application of the Divine Code is a golden key for the restoration of one’s innate genius, compassion and greatness. Shared, it offers a collective roadmap to a new, golden age of wisdom, love and unity. It is in this spirit that Robert and I champion knowledge of the Divine Code and its infinite practical applications. To Infinity and Beyond!
