Even the shades start with the center colour and then are
diluted using this ratio.

Looks great!

If it's a bedroom, it may be a good idea to notice any differences in sleep patterns and dream activity of whoever is sleeping there :)

Any thoughts behind the color-schemes? Or is it just taste?

A friend came to stay and slept in the room. They said they slept well but didn't
notice anything peculiar.

Hi

Posting in a thread today brought up the Golden Ratio again.

There is a formula that resovlves any number down to the GR
It is:

Root(n+1)

By placing the result back in as n and iterating that formula a number of times
the answer balances out when it reaches the GR

On a calcultaor any number will reach the GR by the 21st iteration or less.
However this is probably due to the accuracy of the calculator.

If you use a spread sheet it is much quicker. ;)

Using Excel a table was formulated Staring with an initial value of One and then
increasing the value by a factor of Ten.

The figures would probably make more sense in a graphical configuration so
anyone good at graphs? :)

Probably better to use logs rather than the numbers in the table.

In Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_ratio) it states that the GR is an irrational number even though Excel finishes resolving
the above formula at fourteen decimal places.

1.61803398874989000.....

Is this down to the accuracy of Excel or the formula?

Does anyone have a formula that shows the GR to be irrational?

Oh, too tired to go into math now:p
but good question... Mr. Zephyr (http://forum.alchemyforums.com/member.php?u=30) hopefully will help you with this!

Moved this to Sacred Geometry (we didn't have this when you first created this thread)!
