Given the golden ratio occurs throughout life, one might ask where it would occur in artificial intelligence. I have searched for this. Silicon, oddly enouph is in the same group as carbon. As we are carbon based it is interesting that artificial intelligence, or man made intelligence (like hal), would be silicon based. Silicon is pretty much useless, as I understand it, if it is not "doped" with boron or phosphorus, atleast as far as negative and positive type silicon are used. Let us consider phosophorus is for making negative type silicon and boron is for making positive type silicon. Let us find the geometric mean between phosphorus (P) and boron (B) and divide it by silicon (Si):

sqrt(P*B)/Si=sqrt(30.97*10.81)/(28.09)=0.65

and let us take the harmonic mean between phosphorus and boron and divide it by silicon:

(2*(30.97*10.81)/(30.97+10.81))/28.09 =0.57

Now let us take the arithmetic mean of these two numbers:

(0.65+0.57)/2=0.61

which are the first two digits in the golden ratio.
