Fractals

Ah yes, fractals.
Beautiful geometric shapes that are basically smaller copies of itself when magnified (with certain rules) - and its length is infinite. Which means endless magnification of an object! Awesome, I know.

The first fractal was rather simple - Koch Snowflake:  equilateral triangle followed by three steps. I will not go into details, there are plenty of definitons on the net - and they are quite simple so anyone can make an experiment. Koch Snowflake has an interesting feature: Its perimeter or length is infinite and its area is measurable - not infinite.

Nowadays, things got a bit more complicated...



A fractal. Awesome one.

They get even cooler.

  1. Fractals are so beautiful. The make me think about the greater patterns in my own life - the idea being that we're all just fractals of larger superstructures in nature.

  6. Dude, fractals are completely awesome. If you haven't seen this before there is a documentary about fractals, and the possibility of the universe being a fractal. It's called "Fractals: The Colors of Infinity".
