   1 Organic Story Design Dr. E. F. Cater, Ed.D   2 The Golden Ratio Euclid, Pythagoras, Plato, Socrates, the Parthenon, the Great Pyramid in Giza, and the Mona Lisa all have one common denominator: The Golden Ratio. Through art, architecture, and philosophy, the Golden Ratio, also called The Golden Mean, crisscrosses humanity as an age-old standard for judging the things which are pleasing to the eye and the mind. We might say, The Golden Ratio has stood for eons of time in the minds-eye as an organic expression of human nature. Great architecture and works of art represent the logical, real-world, expressions of The Golden Ratio. However, philosophers and theologians also discussed how the ratio brings balance to everyday life. As a mechanism of design, The Golden Ratio can also serve the world of oral storytelling. The organic balance of the ratio represents the way our mind sees the world and interprets orality and the physical expressions of a person speaking. We like or dislike something we hear and see because of the words used. However, the presentation made by a human can also be liked or disliked because of the way the words are used and expressed. When drawn out and used as a visualization of an oral story, we can see the rise in intensity and the denouement of an oral story. These factors provide an excellent means for organizing and developing a story capable of creating influence in the minds-eye of an audience. The Golden Mean whirl on the following pages provides a new, organic resource for the design and construction of an oral story.  Note:  Achieving the Golden Mean for any object comes through measurement and algebraic calculation. The arc used on the following pages was developed from the standard   or 1.618 used on the Parthenon. The formula is a  over b  = a  plus b  over a  = 1.618 =  . Drawn with a compass, the arc ends point straight down. I curved the end back toward the beginning to represent the way a story, or work of art, leads you back to where you started.   3   4   5
