I like fractals

I kept looking at that photo of lichen I posted the other day, trying to think of what it reminded me of. Oh yeah, fractals! Mandelbrot sets! Cool math stuff I don't understand at all, but it sure is pretty. Hats off to you if you do understand them.


  1. Hi There! The reason i visited your site is because of the beautifull fractal picture. The idea behind chaos theory is that on a macro- and microlevel you see exactly the same structures. And the fractals (Mendelsohn) are a visualisation of a chaotic structure. (i'm not a specialist, just read 2 books regarding choas theory. You have a math PhD to really comprehend it)
    BTW your flower pics are also beautifull.

  2. Hi, I love this beautiful picture of a fractal! Is it possible to let me know who is the graphics designer? We would like to create a logo for our non-profit called Beyond Wisdom.
    Our mission is to heal ourselves, heal our families, our communities, and our planet now. We present engaging information about choices and framework about healing including bridging the eastern modalities with western by presenting the science behind it.
    Paying it forward is one of our core values. We thought a fractal is so appropriate.

    thank you.
