# Geometry and the Golden Rule

The earliest forms of human study of the Golden logic is expressed in the simple geometric relationships of the **Golden Rule. **The golden rule is a means by which to divide a line such that the two segments were in a given ratio to the whole, where **a / b = ****(a + b)**** / b**

This says that the ratio between the whole (a+b) and the largest segment (a) of the line is the same as the ratio between that same large section of the line (a) and the smaller section of the line.

This is the one-dimensional demonstration of the simple pattern that is expressed as follows: **Each successive line is the sum of the previous two.**
