Needs a section on associated woo, such as claims that structures made with it have magical properties, or that it was involved in the construction of the Egyptian pyramids, or whatever. I lack the knowledge to write it myself, though. - LucidFox (talk) 21:13, 20 August 2011 (UTC)

Rebuttal to Creationism[edit]

Someone more knowledgeable than me should take on the quest of writing why the claim that 'the Golden Ratio is evidence for a Creator and Intelligent Design' is false. 189.61.220.19 (talk) 22:15, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

"claim"? Where is this claim? Scream!! (talk) 22:50, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

Reciprocal of phi[edit]

Would it be considered an interesting mention in the article that the decimal sequence of the reciprocal of phi is exactly that of phi itself without the initial "1":
phi = 1.6180339887...
1/phi = .6180339887...— Unsigned, by: ‎108.1.68.178 / talk / contribs

Not really. That's a consequence of its definition (see here). By definition, 1 + (1/phi) = phi. Thus, 1/phi = phi - 1. - Grant (Talk) 05:38, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
