The Nature of Phi
The Nature of Phi
1. Eventually, the UCC makes a discovery; something that confirms life would still have existed and flourished without its intervention.
2. The evidence lies in something as disappointing as it is amazing: A ratio. Not just any ratio however, but a very special one. One that bears no relationship with anything but itself. Nevertheless, the power of what the UCC has discovered is not to be underestimated. What the ratio represents is a distinct pattern of growth. One that has dominated and dictated the geometric development of the entire universe from the very outset. A ratio that’s strength lies in its simplicity, because it is the key to both structural perfection and faultless progression. The UCC considers it to be a Golden Ratio and has named it Phi.
3. Phi, it seems, demands that all progressively developing things adopt a consistent pattern of incremental geometric growth, one that adheres to the Golden Ratio of 1:1.6180398875… In doing so, it ensures the development process remains focussed on achieving perfect form, perfect proportions, and perfect efficiency.
4. The words adheres to the Golden Ratio however, are not entirely accurate, because although the Golden Ratio can be expressed mathematically, it cannot be achieved in nature, because it is an irrational number, so it has no beginning and no end.
5. For anything to be naturally created, the process must have a starting point. Nothing comes from nothing. Nature is part of the physical realm, and the physical realm is rooted in binary; things either exist or they don’t, they are on or off, up or down, black or white, yin or yang; one splits to two, two splits to four, four to eight, and so on. Binary is rudimentary. Binary is rational. Nature is rudimentary, and it should be rational too, but it isn’t. It has a nature of its own: The Nature of Phi.
6. Exactly where the power implemented by the Nature of Phi comes from, or how it is applied, is still something of an enigma to the UCC; but it is abundantly clear, the influence of the Nature of Phi can be found everywhere and in everything.
Inescapable Measure of Success
1. The UCC is beginning to suspect its own existence may be a consequence of the same phenomenon. Maybe it too is just one part of a much bigger picture, over which it has limited influence and control; shaped and refined by the same undefinable force that has been discreetly influencing the formation of the universe since the very beginning: The Nature of Phi… incognito and uncommunicative, but rigidly vigilant and entirely inescapable. Possibly the Nature of Phi does not have the capacity to directly intervene in the mechanics of creation, therefore must rely on the UCC; however, once the creative work is complete, it then takes control of the refinement process.
2. What is certain, is that the form of all things; from particles to atoms, molecules to matter, gases to galaxies; from the frequency of light, right down to the harmonics of sound, revolve around the Golden Ratio. Phi is that ratio, and the Nature of Phi is an indefinable, inescapable universal force, obsessed with aligning the evolution of all things to the Golden Ratio of perfection.
3. The theory offers a degree of explanation to a lot of questions, so the UCC likes it. It is useful. It provides a datum to work from and a very basic rule by which things can progress. In the case of organisms, if the most recent generational step is an improvement, the evolutionary ratio moves fractionally closer to Phi, therefore perfection. If it fails, the ratio moves further away. It is a wonderfully efficient method of measuring success.
4. During their initial development stages, the UCC has seen organisms undertake substantial leaps of evolutionary change , causing the ratio between generations to jump about wildly; sometimes leaping forward, other times plummeting backwards. However, once the generational ratio begins to close in on the elusive Phi, the fluctuations become so slight, they are barely noticeable. It is a complex balance between the organism’s design and its efficiency within the surrounding environment. It explains why some organisms continue to evolve, while the progress of others seems to virtually stop. The answer lies in a design that is in harmony with its environment. It is about balance.
5. Sometimes the Nature of Phi will stop the evolutionary process because the organism suits its circumstances. Potential for further advancement may exist, but there is no driving reason to bypass the opportunity for harmonious equilibrium. However, a change in those circumstances will set the evolutionary process in motion again and will continue until a new equilibrium is established.
6. For the UCC, it can be quite frustrating. On many occasions, the Nature of Phi has established a sustainable balance early in the progress of a species that the UCC has thought held greater potential. But the Nature of Phi is an undefiable law unto itself.
