This is not rigorous, & I'll keep it brief...Everything I've been reading pinpoints the enduring appeal & use of fractal principles since our dimly
conceived ancestors eyed the savannah coursing around them for shelter, food, etc.. As nimble as our brains are, they remain sweetly attuned to the 'perfect' aesthetic pitch of the intermediate fractal dimension (1.3- 1.5). Way back in 1st Century AD The Surangama Sutra explored The Essence of Mind -searching for the meaning of ultimate reality as taught by the Buddha. During the 1200's (kangen era-Chinese) The Whole Universe in all Ten Directions was studied exhaustively by monks & masters. The One Bright Pearl. Hindu temples are archtectural models of the Hindu cosmos,which is conceived as a hologram. Gothic Architecture supplies a fractal counterpart in the West.
This is not news, bear with me-I'm trying to connect the living & perpetual aspect of fractals and the human nervous system with what 'we'
might be sacrificing/leaving behind. Our intellect may be causing the pace of world/evolution to trancend the emotional /intuitive level that we still need so profoundly. Some kind of not-so-subtle-breakdown if you will.

Now more than ever & especially since fractals have become so much more accessible via computers, I propose that we need them- in art,
architecture, landscape..."it is not the tree that causes these emotional responses, but the fractal mathematics of the tree"( Yannick Joye/ Fractal Architecture. Could it Be Good For You ? )Looking through the beautiful works of Forum participants I keep imagining huge murals in cities, of fractal art, specifically because they are so soothing to look upon. Their embedded dimensions would connect to to our 'old' mind
and if we were not lucky enough to live in a sylvan city, perhaps smooth out our sense of space & time.

Speaking of time, I've got to leave for work here shortly...

Of course there are endless examples available for attempting to follow the fractal thread thru our (brief) time on this Earth. I am not accustomed to forum -type writing..putting critical thinking into words. It's just that if I didn't start SOMEWHERE ( like the poetry, he he)
I probably never would.

Thank you, to whomever . bubble gum

For mathematics put Magi-cal knowledge production, and astrology (with a small a).

A wonderful idea, to emphasise the fractal nature of our experiences by highlighting its simple principles. This would make it accessible to all who then could find the fractals in their own experiences themselves, thus avoiding a "Fractal" dogmatism which would arise from those seeking power over others.

The Mandelbrot set should be put on a flag!

Thank you so much for commenting ! Iridescent fractals to you, Jehovajah. Might we borrow Vega's beautiful banner for just such a showing ?

I know Bib has been able to do some inspirational work with teachers and pupils at his shows. His fractal images and videos are great ambassadors.

Maybe chris should make a flag for his car when he is doing promotional work for fractal forums?
