Facial Beauty / Divine Proportion

Everything in the universe is based on the proportion: 1 to 1.618

1 to 1.618
Divine proportion
Golden proportion
Balance & Harmony

Divine proportion is everywhere! In art, architecture, advertisement, music, birds, insects, flowers, etc.

Each succeeding finger bone is 1.618 the length of the preceding finger bone. The distance from elbow to wrist is 1.618 the distance from wrist to fingertip. The graph to the right shows a heartbeat. The distance between the last two EKG peaks is 1.618 the distance between the first two peaks.

There are even religious references to the Divine Proportion
Noah's Ark uses a Golden Rectangle
In Genesis 6:15, God commands Noah to build an ark saying:

"And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of; The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits"

The Biblical number 666 may also have a relationship to the divine proportion

The number 666 is related to Phi

Revelations 13:18, speaking of the Anti-Christ, says the following:

"This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is a man's number, his number is 666"

The beast, the Antichrist, is thus related to the number 666, one of the greatest mysteries of the Bible.

Curiously enough, if you take the sine of 666°, you get 0.80901699, which is one half of negative phi, or perhaps what one might call the "anti-phi"

The sine 666° is one-half negative of 1.618. It is opposite of balance and harmony or chaos and disharmony.

The most beautiful spiral is based on the divine Proportion
The numbers 1,2,3,5,8,13,21….is based on the Fibonacci numerical series and is based on the divine proportion. When the squares are contiguously attached as seen to the left, and a curved line is drawn based on these squares as seen to the right, you get an equiangular spiral which is visually beautiful.

The spiral of a seashell is based on this equiangular spiral.

Even the spiral from a galaxy is based on the equiangular spiral.

Now let us discuss the possible effect of Divine Proportion
to the human body.

Publications of Dr. Jefferson's Unique Concept
(Click cover to hyperlink to his articles)

The concept of divine proportion is not new. Even the great artist Leonardo Da Vinci over 500 years ago illustrated it.

Man in a circle illustrating proportion by Leonardo Da Vinci, 1485-90

There are millions, possibly billions of examples of Divine Proportion in and on the human body. The illustration to the right only shows a few example.

Top of head to belly button = 1, then belly button to bottom of the feet = 1.618
Shoulder to fingertip =1, then the ideal height of man or woman = 1.618

All beautiful faces regardless of race, age, sex, and other variables conform to the Divine Proportion.
Ideal vertical proportion. If the corner of the mouth (CH) to the bottom of the chin (ME) is one, then corner of the mouth to corner of the eye (LC) is 1. If the corner of the nose (LN) to bottom of the chin is 1, then the corner of the nose to hairline is 1.
Ideal transverse proportion. If the width of the nose (LN) is 1, then the width of the mouth (CH) is 1.618; the width between two corners of the eyes (LC) is 1.6182, and the width between two temples (TS) is 1.6183.
Ideal height and width of a face. If the distance between the two cheeks are 1, then the ideal height is 1.618

Dr. Jefferson believes that there is a universal standard for facial beauty regardless of race, age, sex, etc.!

As discussed previously, Divine Proportion is everywhere. It is found in living and non living dynamic entities, like the galaxy.

Entire human population is genetically encoded to develop toward the Divine Proportion. Since Divine Proportion applies to every human individual, then there is a universal standard for facial beauty based on balance and harmony.

Universal Standard
This is a beautiful face of a Caucasian woman.

The face is a composite of 4 beautiful models by taking their best features. Dr.Jefferson feels that if you disregard skin color and hair, the computerized face looks most like the beautiful Black model.

These images show beautiful women of different races. In actuality all 4 are of the same individual (lower right) with makeup and wigs. Underneath skin color and hair texture, lies facial architecture that must conform to a universal standard based on the Divine Proportion.

Dr. Stephen Marquardt, maxillo-facial surgeon, developed a beauty mask overlay based on the Divine Proportion. If an individual’s face conforms to the beauty mask, then the face will be beautiful. There is a beauty mask for males and females based on the Divine Proportion regardless of race, age, or nationalities.

This models face is beautiful because it conforms to the Divine Proportion.


If the beauty mask conforms to any faces regardless of race, sex, and nationalities, the face will be beautiful. In males, the face will be extremely handsome.


Nefertiti, from about 1370 to 1350 B.C., considered beautiful in her time conforms to the beauty mask. This shows that the standard of beauty back then, 3,200 years ago, was the same as it is today. Beauty is timeless!


This face was voted to be the most beautiful by 10,000 website voters. It conforms to the beauty mask.
