Dear colleague:

The present stage in development of science is characterized by great interst in the doctrine on numerical Universe harmony created by Pythagoreans, in the "Sacred Geometry" created by the antique scientists, and in "sacred knowlege" contained in Talmud, Bible, Chinese "Book of Changes" and other texts. The Golden Section plays a central role in the "Sacred Geometry". This direction of human culture stands on the high-power scientific base created by the works of the outstanding scientists and thinkers of manking: the Great Greeks Pythagoras, Plato, Euclid, the great Italians Fibonacci, Leonardo da Vince, Luca Pacioli, the genius astronomer Johannes Kepler, the French mathematicians Lucas and Binet, the German scientific Zeising, the great geometer Felix Klein and others.

It is surprising that now on the Internet it is exhibited about 4 millions sites where Fibonacci numbers and the Golden Section are mentioned! And this number is the most convincing evidence of great interest in Fibonacci numbers and the Golden Section in modern culture, moreover, this fact confirms active process of modern science “Fibonaccization” that is one of the major tendencies in development of modern culture. Also there are all reasons to suppose that just this process could lead to creation of new interdisciplinary science, "Sciences of System Harmony", which could become a source of new ideas in development of philosophy, history of science, mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, economy, computer sciences and electric communication, linguistics, poetry, music, architecture!

I would like to inform you that the International Conference "Problems of Harmony, Symmetry and the Golden Section in Nature, Science and Art" was held in Vinnitsa State Agricultural University in October 22-25, 2003. The main purpose of the Conference was to join all Slavonic Fibonacci scientists and to discuss contribution of the Slavonic science to development of this important direction.

I send to you Resolution of the Conference and I would like to invite you to visit our Museum of Harmony of Golden Section, the official site of the International Club of the Golden Section (ICGS). Now our Club is in stage of organization and we will inform you on activity of our Club in our Museum of Harmony and Golden Section.

Also I would like to inform you that the official address of our Museum and Club is I would like to ask you to use this address after January 1, 2004.

Sincerely yours Alexey Stakhov
