Fractals…a word that was running around in my head this morning when I woke. What on earth is a fractal? I’ve heard it before have never known what it is.
I decided to Google it and found out that fractals are the most beautiful of shapes – snowflakes for instance. When I saw some snowflakes, it reminded me of Dr Emoto’s work when he photographed the beautiful shapes that water crystals formed.
I learnt quite a bit of sacred geometry in 1996 such as the Fibonacci spiral and golden mean but never really paid much attention to it after that, although I did note the odd thing here and there. But I don’t remember the word fractal ever being used and now I discover the world is full of fractals – lightning, ferns, broccoli, peacock feathers, leaves, etc.
Fine…so now I know what a fractal is…but why is it buzzing around in my head?
I decided to write this down so I don’t forget. As I wrote the above I suddenly realised that as crystals are fractals, does this mean I am a fractal with my crystalline body? As I think about this I can feel my brain lighting up, especially the frontal lobe.
Hmm…interesting. Something is definitely trying to get my attention. I’m gonna leave this for a while and maybe some more info will surface from the massive downloads that I have been receiving.
