La divina proporción



Seguro que habrás visto esto antes. Está en los libros de historia, en ciertos salvapantallas de Windows, está hasta en camisetas. Si eres arquitecto, ingeniero, médico, crítico de arte, o incluso si solamente has visto mucha televisión, este nombre te resultará conocido: Leonardo Da Vinci.

Cuando tenía algo más de 15 años y como parte del entrenamiento básico de un programador, me topé con el reto de crear un programa que fuera capaz de generar esta secuencia de números:

1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21.....

Esta serie aparentemente al azar, o en la que no se adivina ninguna relación, se llama "la serie de Fibonacci" y es un reto matemático bastante difícil hasta que uno se da cuenta que los numeros de la serie se forman sumando los dos anteriores, empezando con el 1. El segundo numero seria 0+1, que es 1, el tercer numero seria 2+1, que es 3, y asi sucesivamente.

Por qué y para qué? ni idea. Lo único que puedo decir es que nunca olvidaré ese nombre y esa secuencia de números. Lo que nunca adiviné fué que si uno divide cada numero por su anterior, el resultado tiende a ser 1.681... que es el número PHI (se pronuncia fi), un número cuyo origen es algo parecido al famoso PI (3.1416...). Lo cual resulta que es una especie de constante universal, presente de alguna manera en toda la naturaleza, por eso se llama "la divina proporción" o la "proporción aúrea".

Este dibujo de Leonardo daVinci afirma que en el hombre, encerrado por un círculo, dando a entender que es el centro del universo, es posible encontrar la divina proporción en muchos lugares, el más notorio es este: al medir la altura de una persona, desde los pies hasta la cabeza, y dividir ese número por la altura desde los pies hasta el ombligo, el resultado tiende a ser 1.681....

Si crees ser perfecto, mídete de ambas maneras, y divide la altura mayor para la menor. Si resulta que sacas 1.681, te felicito... eres un hombre o una mujer ARMONICAMENTE perfecto(a) y eso te acerca más al prototipo de belleza universal al que admiran todos los grandes artistas, y al que muchos quisieran aproximarse.

"El Codigo Da Vinci". Estoy terminando de leer ese libro, que si bien literariamente no es la gran cosa, pues muestra cuestiones que valen la pena investigar.

Apenas postee mi resumen del libro, te pondre como referencia para que lean un poquito. Bye!

IFLH announces Senator David Cain has joined its Board of Directors!!

IFLH volume trading is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement. The value of this
stock appears poised for growth! This one should not remain on the ground floor for long.

BREAKING NEWS!!
InterFinancial Holdings, Corp. (OTC Pink Sheets: IFLH - News) announced that they have added
David Cain to their board of directors. David Cain is currently the Chairman of the advisory
board to TTI (Texas Transportation Institute). Senator Cain represented Senate District 2 for
eight years in the Texas Senate and Chaired the Senate State Affairs Subcommittee on
Transportation and served nine terms in the Texas House of Representatives for District 107.

During his twelve years as Chairman of the House Committee on Transportation, Senator Cain�s
efforts on behalf of the people of Texas have been widely recognized. He was named to Texas
Monthly Magazine�s list of Ten Best Legislators, the Dallas Morning News said he was one of
the outstanding legislators of the 73rd session, and the Texas Department of Transportation
awarded him the Russell H. Perry Award in 1995 for his efforts to gain public awareness of
the need for and benefits of transportation facilities in the State of Texas.

Jeffrey C. Bruteyn, Managing Director, stated, We at InterFinancial are proud to have such a
widely recognized Senator join our board and oversee out automotive lending division. His
affiliations and connections to the automotive industry will be invaluable to our company.
Senator Cain will be instrumental in expediting our approval to use a government issued Seller
Finance License.

Seller Finance Licenses are very difficult to obtain and are usually reserved for the Big Boys
with heavy lobbyists. These licenses are highly coveted because it allows the finance company
to collect the entire down payment, instead of paying a portion of it to the taxing authority.
This dramatically helps a finance company�s bottom line if the buyer defaults on the loan.

With the new GPS tracking systems being installed on every car to dramatically improve
repossessions and with Senator Cain on the Board of Directors, InterFinancial Holdings
is ready to take their business to the next level.

Conclusion:

The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little known Companies
That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens. This stock will not be a Secret for long.
Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!
GO IFLH!
