We can observe this golden spiral pattern because the human embryo growth is proportional to the size of the human embryo. This relation enables us to see this amazing mathematical relation. (see figure 2&3)

We can also find golden ratio in human body. The Ancient Greeks considered one woman beautiful if the proportions of the body portions give us golden ratio.(see figure 4&5)

If you measure the lengths of the bones in your finger, you will observe that the ratio of the longest bone in a finger to the middle bone is about the same ratio of the middle bone to the shortest bone. The ratio is going to give us Phi.
