A Continuous Becoming

It was π day when I arrived in London yesterday.  I didn't see π but I did see another interesting irrational number, φ, which is the golden ratio  1.618033988749894848204586834... .  Unlike π, which is a transcendental number, though, φ is an algebraic number since it is the positive root of the equation x2x – 1 = 0.  φ appeared repeatedly at the exhibition A Continuous Becoming.
