- Man has tried to understand nature and represent it in mathematical ways since ancient times. Looking back to the past, instead of finding uncultured civilizations, we found that they understood the beauty of nature, and expressed it by numbers. The Tiwanaku Empire is an example that amused archeologist from all over the world. Its megalithic giant's constructions and its iconography are still at the Bolivian plateau. Here, we focus on one particular relic from this Empire, the Gate of the Sun and its mathematical relation to the gold number.
