Today I'm excited to be presenting the concluding episode of our ongoing series on Pythagorean Philosophy. As with each of the earlier episodes in this series, today's show is based around a written article that you can read (for free) on my Substack/blog.
The main topic of this episode is on the Golden Ratio (i.e. the Golden Section or Divine Proportion). Over the next 90+ minutes, I explain what the Golden Ratio is, how it's measured, and why, in Esoteric Philosophy, it is considered significant and sacred.
As part of our discussion, we'll be going into the work of Scott Olsen (author of the excellent book "The Golden Section: Nature's Greatest Secret") to show how the Golden Ratio is cleverly referenced - in a vague and concealed manner - in works written over 2000 years ago by the great Athenian philosopher Plato. In these writings, Plato points us toward the esoteric significance of Phi and hints at why it was regarded with such high regard by the Mystery Schools, who forbade him and others from discussing it in an open and straightforward manner.
I hope you'll stay tuned for this discussion. Please also check out the written article, linked above.
