Divine Proportion

Projective Geometry Construction

Luke 2:19 in harmonic perspective. The red word is the longer and the blue word is the shorter, in the divine section, meaning that the proportion of the short to the long is the same as the long to the whole of the two together. In reality, the two words are in the same-sized boxes, but the nature of perspective reduces the appearance of things at length.

The formula for proportion, supposing the longer is a unit length of one pica, is given as:

X * X + X - 1 = 0,

where X is the shorter length.

Submodules of Z[x,y]

Let M = Z[1/2,1/5] (ring of polynomials evaluated at 1/2 and 1/5 with integer coefficients))

Then let K = Z[1/2] a submodule of M.

Does the following calculation hold for M/K?

Take 9/10 from M, then what is its congruence in M/K?

9/10 = 5/10 + 4/10 = 1/2 + 2/5 and since 1/2 is from K, then

9/10 is congruent to 2/5 + K in M/K?
