“Golden Fear” uses one of the equations for the golden ratio or phi, which is the most irrational number compared with all irrational numbers. Out of all the equations for phi “Golden Fear” uses the equation, which is in the form of a continued fraction. However, the word ‘fear’ is substituted for the number '1' in the original equation
