There is a shape to the universe- a form inherent in all things that move through time-space. It exists in the literal physical shape of trees to the way that a new piece of slang becomes accepted as a proper piece of language, or the difficulty curve in how a new skill is learned. This shape can illustrate the life of stars and the shedding of subatomic particles from radioactive dust, it can explain apathy and demonstrate the power of small acts. It is a cascade and inescapable.
It starts so simple that it is practically not worth the mention for example, if one were learning guitar: quality = calloses + total-time-played, callouses = amount-of-play-time-possible, but play-time = pain * time-now-playing and yet play-time = callouses + callouses/pain. This creates a loop where the more you play the more you hurt, but the more you hurt the longer you can play, the longer you play the greater the quality of your playing. So you see why one must suck at something or hurt by it before the equation begins to show its exponential growth.
It starts so simple and yet that math (and know: math is a language just like English and that is all it is) can be applied everywhere. The complexity of one formula overlaps into another forming a harmonic distortion and syncronicity, or epiphany, or growth spurt or [insert 'leveling' variable here]. Where there is movement through time there is the form of this at work. In the electron shell's probability fields there is the demonstration of its fingerprint.
It starts so simple, a fractal: just a few letters, some punctuation marks, and a number or two. Then this simplicity it repeated over and over to determine specks of color, causing lines of motion, building structures of beautiful complexities and unexpected recognizable familiarity. When I work on fractals I witness a reaffirmation of the sacred order to thing, but not like a monk who sacrifices and flagellates but like someone who just got new glasses and is overjoyed because they didnt realize there was so much to see everywhere.
It starts so simple, and speaks so much. THIS is 'why fractals'.
For anyone interested I recommend these FREE builders:
-I can't promise you will see life changing visions from using them, but if it helps: before I used the above I really hated math....
