The Golden Mean and Three Bricks

by Billy Gawn

Some time ago I observed that when three objects were placed in positions relative to each other that the individual energy fields of the objects interacted ‘in various ways.  When placed in alignment and at certain distances apart the three circular fields disappeared and instead a straight line of energy was formed with radial lines going away from each object. The energy dowsed in these lines is mainly detrimental in nature.

I also observed that when three objects were set in a certain triangular form that interaction again took place with the individual energy lines disappearing and straight radial lines of energy coming away from the objects, but in this case it dowsed as being mainly beneficial.  I subsequently wondered if the shape or geometry of the triangle had any significance to the outcome.  Therefore I carried out the following experiment to see if that were the case.

I placed two bricks (A & B) at random on a reasonably level area of concrete.  There were energy fields to be observed around both bricks.  I then placed a third brick at random in a position that created a triangular form.  There were individual energy fields around all three bricks.  I then moved brick (C) until I observed the disappearance of the individual energy fields and there were straight lines of energy dowsable between all three bricks.  At this time I also noted that curved lines were coming away from the three bricks.

I continued to move brick (C) by a millimetre or so at a time until the radial lines became reasonably straight in all cases.  From brick (A) there were three radial lines and from brick (B & C) six radial lines.  This is shown in the photograph below.

I then marked on the end of the bricks, with pencil, their centre position and measured the distance between them The measurements found are as shown on the above photograph to the nearest millimetre.

The Golden Mean is a ratio of 1 to 1.618, the square root of which is 1.272. A triangle constructed to this ratio has a base as 1, the perpendicular side as 1.272 times the base, and the hypotenuse as 1.618 times the base. This conforms with the Pythagorean theorem for a right-angled triangle.

It is interesting to compare the measurement of a triangle conforming to this ratio with the triangle that I constructed with the three bricks through dowsing.

Base = 1301 mm

Calculated Values                                                         Measured

1301 mm X 1.272 = 1654.872 mm                                 1653 mm

1301 mm X 1.618 = 2105.01 8 mm                                2105 mm

Side A to C conformed exactly and side B to C was just under 2mm out.

I would point out again that the final position of brick C was determined by dowsing through observing the disappearance of the individual energy fields and the formation of radial lines from each of the three bricks.  More attention to the straightness and length of the radial lines may have resulted in an even more perfect match.

This shows that when objects are at distances apart that conform with the Golden Mean that their energy fields interact with each other.  Also the energy generated by this combined field is mainly beneficial, depending on the degree of accuracy of the placement.  I am sure that in nature arrangements such as this occur creating areas of “good” energy.

The Golden Mean can be expressed in many other geometrical shapes such as rectangles, pentagons etc.  Egg shapes can also comply where the sum of the length of the long and short axis multiplied by 1.618 is equal to the perimeter length.  Some of the egg shaped stone circles as well as some of the flattened circles identified by Alexander Thom closely match this ratio.

The incorporation of the Golden Mean in architecture and in the construction of buildings and other structures is therefore likely to create an atmosphere pleasing to those who would live in them or use them.  Old churches and cathedrals are a good example of this where the peace within can be felt immediately on entering.
