Reseña del editor
One of the delights of life is the discovery and rediscovery of patterns of order and beauty in naturedesigns revealed by slicing through a head of cabbage or an orange, the forms of shells and butterfly wings. These images are awesome not just for their beauty alone, but because they suggest an order underlying their growth, a harmony existing in nature. What does it mean that such an order exists; how far does it extend?
The Power of Limits was inspired by those simple discoveries of harmony. The author went on to investigate and measure hundreds of patternsancient and modern, minute and vast. His discovery, vividly illustrated here, is that certain proportions occur over and over again in all these forms. Patterns are also repeated in how things grow and are madeby the dynamic union of oppositesas demonstrated by the spirals that move in opposite directions in the growth of a plant.
The joining of unity and diversity in the discipline of proportional limitations creates forms that are beautiful to us because they embody the principles of the cosmic order of which we are a part; conversely, the limitlessness of that order is revealed by the strictness of its forms. The author shows how we, as humans, are included in the universal harmony of form, and suggests that the union of complementary opposites may be a way to extend that harmony to the psychological and social realms as well.

I am delighted to have my BOOK back. I learn from it every time i reread it.
Oh, and don't be daunted by the complexity of the measurements; just relax and enjoy the beauty. You will see with your mind's eye the truth of the Power of Limits. ;-)
Do buy this book, but if you would like something that explains the intrinsic nature of proportion and number, I suggest Michael S Schneider's book 'A beginners Guide to Constructing the Universe'. I bought my latest copy [my second] right here at Amazon.
Michael is an intelligent, focused, enthusiatic teacher [I've attended his seminars & workshops] and his book is chocked full of easily understandable information and illustrations showing, again, the logical beautiful matrix of our wonderful world. There are drawing exercises so you can see the sacred geometry unfold before your very eys; try your hand at drawing nature's beautiful mysteries yourself!
If you're wondering what your wife is talking about, and looking for an algorithm to cess her out, it may not be in here, but it could be.
so simple, so sublime....
