Fractals: Patterns of the Universe Within the Universe

Fractals…they are all around us, in Nature                                                                               and in the Universe. Fractals are mathematicalFractal1 sets, from which arise detailed patterns of self-similarity, which means the pattern of a given fractal repeatedly repeats itself. The Universe itself is full of repeating patterns, from electrons circling an atomic nucleus to moons orbiting planets and planets orbiting stars. Fractals: patterns of the Universe within the Universe within the Universe…ad infinitum.

Fractals In NatureRomanBroccoli

The term fractal was coined by the mathematician, Benoit Mandelbrot, who also saw these detailed repeating patterns in Nature: the patterns in leaves and the vessels of the circulatory system, in clouds and ocean waves, in snowflakes and crystals, and even in the patterns of vibrations and sounds, such as heartbeats.

Order Within the Chaos

At first glance, the detailed patterns of fractals look chaotic, but as we take a closer look and see the patterns of self-similarity, we become aware that there is order beneath the chaos. Similarly from quantum physics to astrophysics to metaphysics, we are just beginning to see and understand the order within the seeming chaos of the Universe.

Interconnectedness

There is purpose and order to everything, for everything is part of All. Like the beautiful patterns of fractals, we are all connected and interconnected pieces of a whole and pieces of the One. Our interconnectedness is a fractal of life. It is a pattern of Being in the Universe within the Universe within the Universe…ad infinitum.

  6. I have often thought in the same vein – wow – your writings do appear to emanate from the mind of the godess of learning, music, poetry and dance – the blog icon – so apt – imust return to savour more

    • Thank you for your kind words! Namaste!

      • no kindness intended – i was always intrigued by the folding of hands in namaste here in india – having spent 40 years away as an indian diplomat overseas – till i discovered that the greeting was not to me or you but our souls – the eternal essence in all things – thats when i began my blog after retirement from the service recently – to research – its called search for the soul first in hindu thought but i propose to go on in christiam, muslim and new age thought too – wonder if u ever read SEAT OF THE SOUL by gary zukav/ changed my life and thinking – that i will research later after the hindu bit is over lol – would really appreciate your profound inputs to enlighten me further in this research/ very good wishes fellow soul

      • I have not read Seat Of the Soul. I will add it to my list though. I’m following your blog now, and will definitely comment/give input when I can. 🙂 Best wishes and blessings to you as well fellow soul!
