What is the Golden Ratio?

The golden ratio is a mathematical ratio, commonly found in nature, that is approximately 1 to 1.618.
It has been used by humans in art and architecture for millenia because physical artifacts with this ratio are naturally pleasing to look to the eye/mind and are also reputed to have life-enhancing benefits.

The Golden Ratio is also known as  the Golden Mean, the Golden Section, or as phi (a Greek letter).

The geometric equation behind the Golden Ratio is related to the Fibonacci Sequence.
