I've long been interested in divine proportion (also called sacred geometry, the golden mean, etc.) and I think there should be an international Phi Day too, .618, June 18th. If it takes off, you can tell all your friends it started here!
|Current page from my 2018 Tangle-a-Day calendar.|
.618 is very close to two thirds. Many art instructions recommend placing major objects approximately one-third of the way from either side, and one-third of the way up or down. This is called the Rule of Thirds and makes the composition more pleasing to the eye.

The Rule of Thirds with the focal point at one intersection.
In the meantime, have a PHIne day!
