BR 's Fractal Worlds


If you have never checked out Fractals and or Chaos Theory you are in for some fun.
The simple explanation is:
The order and structure that natural chaotic systems have.Like the weather, it is an unpredictable
system. But there is structure and order in there. To me its the way the universe works.

A snowflake is a Fractal. They all have 6 sides but no 2 flakes are the same.
You can give a computer a mathematical formula (program) and it will draw you
a snowflake. Below are images created with other formulas.

This can get addicting , you have been warned !!

Lightning bolt that I mirrored with my image processing program.
When I stuck the images together I could not believe what I saw.
The patterns of Chaos--the Mandelbrott set.
Any thoughts

Play the Chaos Game

Pick a random starting point.
Now randomly pick A, B, or C.
Lets say you picked B.
Put a dot half way between your starting point and the B.
Randomly pick again and do the same thing.
Put a dot half way between your new dot and A, B, or C.
You might think that after 100's of  times doing this you would end up with a filled in triangle.
BUT YOU DO NOT
You end up with a Fractal triangle.
