though it's obviously not a phi ratio. However, the fourth square pene-
trades the fifth circle in what appears to be a near-perfect phi ratio. Then it
comes out of phi ratio again on the fifth and sixth squares. Then, unexpect-
edly, the seventh square penetrates the ninth circle again in what appears to
be near-perfect phi ratio—not one circle beyond, as it did on the fourth
square and fifth circle, but two circles beyond. And it is even closer to the
Golden Mean, the phi ratio of 1.6180339..., than the first one.
This is the beginning of a geometrical progression that could go on for-
ever, a progression in which we humans are only the second possible step.
(And we thought so highly of ourselves!) Using the full life of a human as
the yardstick, in human history we are now at the level of consciousness
represented by the development of the human zygote just after the comple-
tion of the first celll. Life in the universe is beyond anything we can image,
yet we are a seed that contains the beginning as well as the end.
Coming back to the practical, you can measure these things without a
measuring stick by calling the radius of the innermost circle one unit; thus
the first circle and first square are two radii across. (This unit makes up an
accusedgrid.) Andwhenyouexpandtothefourthsquare,itwillbe8radii
across. To know how many radii there are around all four sides of the
square, you simply multiply by 4 to see that 32 radii compose the perimeter
if the fourth square. We need to know the perimeter because when it
equals or approximates the circumference of the circle, we have the phi ra-
---- (Check chapter 7.)
We wish to see if the fifth circle's circumference is equal to (or close to)
the perimeter of the fourth square (32 radii), so we calculate its circumfer-
ence by multiplying its diameter times pi (3.14). Since there are 10 units
radii) across the fifth circle, if you multiply that times pi (3.14), the cir-
cumference equals 31.40 radii. The square's perimeter is exactly 32, so they
are very close; the circle is slightly smaller. According to Thoth, this repre-
sents the first time that human consciousness becomes self-
aware.
Now let's calculate this for the seventh square and ninth cir-
cle- There are 14 radii across the seventh square; multiplying by
4 skies gives us 56 radii for the perimeter of the seventh square.
The ninth circle has a diameter of 18 radii, and that times pi is
5652. Inthiscasethecircleisslightlylarger,whereasbefore,it
•as slightly smaller. If you keep making circles beyond the otigi-
was nine, you'll see the same pattern: slightly larger, slightly
smaller, slightly larger, slightly smaller—getting closer and closer
to the perfection we noted on the Fibonacci sequence approach-
ing the phi ratio [see chapter 8].
The First and Third Levels of Consciousness
In Figure 9-2 we are looking at the very beginning of con-
sciousness in these first two phi-ratio places. This indicates

that consciousness will probably continue forever to expand of human
consciousness, near-perfect phi ratios.
