Human Heartbeat and Fibonacci Patterns

A peaceful heartbeat is said by some to beat in a Phi rhythm.

The prominent parts of an electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) are the P wave, a deflection caused by the current originating in the atrium; the QRS complex, showing the passage of the electrical activity into the ventricles; and the T wave, as the ventricles reset themselves.  The electrocardiograms (ECG or EKG) of human heartbeats vary considerably depending on a variety of factors.

The former site Heartbeat2000 saught to study the relationships between the physical heart and the spiritual heart, that is the soul, of human beings.  The views presented there suggest that a heartbeat that produces a phi relationship in the T point of the ECG represents a state of being that is one of health, peace and harmony.

While this is an area that still needs research and scientific corroboration, it is an interesting perspective on another potential appearance of phi in life.


EKG’s show a resemblance to the Fibonacci Convergence.

As explained on the Fibonacci Series page, the ratio of each successive pair of numbers in the Fibonacci series (0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, . . .) converges onphi (1.618. . .) as you go higher in the series.

The first numbers in the series give an approximation of phi.  For example:

 

1/0=
1/1=1
2/1=2
3/2=1.5
5/3=1.666..
8/5=1.6
13/8=1.625

Curiously, if you graph these approximations of phi in the series above you get the chart below, the first part of which bears a similarity to the EKG pattern of the human heartbeat.

The law of his (e.g., David’s) God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.  Psalms 37:31Insight on relationship of Fibonacci Convergence contributed by Robert Bartlett, who notes:

    You can call me crazy if you will, but at the 3rd hour of the morning on Thursday, June 07, 2012 while I was communing with GOD via my daily venerations, devotions and adorations, I was illuminated/enlightened by GOD with HIS wisdom through the Holy Spirit to know and truly believe that the old Yiddish/Hebrew name of GOD which is YAHWEH (ya’oo’ah) if said in repetition as it was originally pronounced in Aremaic would sound just the same as if you were listening to the human heart beating through an ultrasound machine. Today, I just came to the public library in an attempt to download samples and listen to human heartbeat tracks and stumbled across this website. I was immediately so entralled, in seeing and relating/connecting like a big puzzle this website’s information to the wisdom I was recently given, I just started writing this comment to be posted without even reading all of this website’s information. I will now print and review all of this information at a later time. But, I truly believe we are onto something. May GOD bless us with HIS grace and HIS wisdom, so we may all carry HIS peace and have the ability to forever find HIS LOVE so we can share the LOVE in HIS honor to each and every one of all mankind. With this I invoke the power of the blood and the name of HIS son, the true Christ, Jesus. AMEN.

    We are not made by chance. Thanks for sharing your given word of wisdom.

    I can safely say that this area doesn’t need any more research to be proved correct: it just is. It’s obviously the truth, and it’s how nature works. This is like Newton and the apple; when he first explained gravity, it was violently opposed by the narrow-minded people of government. People did many experiments and checked every detail of how “gravity” affects the Earth. But now it is evident that gravity is there and appears in every aspect of our lives. As does Phi. It’s just how nature works. To try to prove otherwise would be suicide.
    People weren’t created by mistake: nature doesn’t just run willy-nilly. It has a system, and if something doesn’t follow that system it’s faulty. There’s no way to really explain it or really put it in words (yet). It’s just there. And because it’s there, and also part of us, it just makes sense. It clicks.
    Phi is part of us,
    It’s what makes us natural:
    Chaos turned order.
    Awesome haiku, right? Do haikus run on Phi, too?

      Like your haiku! You are right, neither theists nor atheists can argue about this, it is clear that humans have a system, a complicated set of directions that none of us yet know how to read. We can read some odd lines, like chemicals, digestion, gravity, but that is just one page. There are millions yet to be read, and, the hardest part, understood.

    I saw an old film the other day where the name of God needed to be spelt out on stepping stones… you know the one. The first step was wrong because it was the letter “J” as in Jehovah.

    As you may know it was correctly done like this… i e h o a.

    If you try saying it, it comes out like “HO”. (silent vowls) As in Holy or Ho Ho Ho.

    Whom has heard Father’s laugh… whom here has an open ear lobe on Earth’s Globe?

    Love to all. Bob x
