I recently watched a documentary on Fractals: The Color of Infinity by Sir Arthur Charles Clarke the author of 2001: A Space Odyssey. Before this I would not be able to tell you what a fractal was, but now I have been researching and am going to awaken you to the possibilities of God using a fractal system to create us.
What is a Fractal?
A geometric pattern that is repeated at smaller or larger scales to produce self similar irregular shapes and surfaces that cannot be represented by classical geometry. In other words a fractal is a shape that is recursively constructed or self-similar, that is, a shape that appears similar at all scales of magnification and is therefore often referred to as “infinitely complex.”
The term fractal was coined in 1975 by Benoît Mandelbrot, from the Latin word fractus, meaning “broken” or “fractured.”
The Mandelbrot Set:
To see a video of a being zoomed into the Mandelbrot (which is one of the first few fractals discovered) check this beautiful Blue Oyster Spiral Fractal Zoom to see and understand the self replicating pattern.
Ok! I know what fractals are. But have I seen any?
Most people around the world have seen fractals in nature. Clouds, trees, mountains rivers, ferns are all examples of fractals. For you to understand more clearly take a look at the image of the Romanesco broccoli showing very fine natural fractals below.
These are very basic fractals that can be found in nature, people have successfully seen complex fractals like the one below with Transcendental Meditation and the use of Psychoactive substances such as LSD.
Why do people consider Fractals as God’s Building Blocks?
By giving fractals simple commands on a computer, man has been able to generate structures so complex that it would take a humongous amount of human time. To show you a simple example click on the image below.
Not only has man managed to create a mountain but a full mountain range in 3D using simple fractal commands. Towards the end of the 1980’s humans managed to create trees and multiples of trees put together with fractals. After the silicon chip revolution the fractal revolution is expected to be the biggest boon to the human race.
I hope I have helped explain Fractals in a manner easy enough for everybody to understand. Creating massive systems becomes easier with fractals, look into the sky the milky way is a fractal system.
Fractal Music, Literature and Art:
Fractal music has the possibilities of creating dimensions and space in the human mind. This is seen in modern generation music, mostly Psychedelic Trance.
Fractals in Literature are very common in Poetry, repetitive words.
In Wallace Stevens’ poem “The Sail of Ulysses (Canto I)” Pollard-Gott took know as the root. Here are the occurrences of know in the poem.
If knowledge and thing known are one
So that to know a man is to be
That man, to know a place is to be
That place, and it seems to come to that;
And if to know one man is to know all
And if one’s sense of a single spot
Is what one knows of the universe,
Then knowledge is the only life,
The only sun of the only day,
The only access to true ease,
The deep comfort of the world and fate.
Another example is ‘Mary had a little lamb,’ that shows the use of fractal in literature.
Fractal art can be used for meditation and healing purpose. In India many people actually use fractal art for mediation. Staring into it can lead you into a transcendental state where the fractals combine to make another image.
Fractal Paintings of Higher Consciousness and Energy like this one create a Channel for Enlightenment and Intuition Healing. I hope you enjoyed my the little run in with fractals. I am placing links of sources that have helped me write this article and which you can use to deepen your knowledge on fractals.
