let me clear up some issues w/r/t


1. the Fibonacci series converges onto phi -- so it is just another property of phi i.e. feel free to use them! :)
2. not only can phi be used in the expansion of ratios but in their reduction as well - it's just a ratio
3. Bartok never kept many notes on his compositional process so claims that Bartok's work makes extensive use of phi are dubious -- although there are examples of his using Fibonacci numbers for structuring a couple of his works

anyway, rather than wait until Jan 6 of next year we could make it 6/1 instead?
