The uncanny valley refers to images which are just like human enough to be easily recognizable and just unlike human enough to be deeply disturbing.…Continue

What are your favorite kind of fractals?

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Joan Denoo Jun 24, 2013. 7 Replies

This isn't intended as a technical question, but one of aesthetic preference. I most enjoy fractal landscapes that seem real and 3D. Zooming through the Mandelbrot set was my first riveting…Continue

The one labeled "Image 1956" or something (I can't recall the whole number) looks just like Italian Broccoli

The helical model - our solar system is a vortex

Using Fractal/Fibonacci/Golden ratio, gives a different perspective of our sun, planets and the universe. 

I have no idea if any of this makes sense or means anything, but it does generate interesting ideas from different perspectives. If nothing else, it is an interesting image. I image going through space, following our sun with our other plants in tow, and going through the universe toward infinity. 

What difference dos that make if my life span is, say 100 years? Well, it makes a difference on how I perceive myself in relation to all that is, was and will be. 

I hope you have as much fun with fractal geometry as I do.

We live in a fractal hologram

Just imagine putting a simple formula into a computer, go to bed and when you awaken, this is what you have! I just get shivers thinking about the implications. 

"frac·tal - n.A geometric pattern that is repeated at ever smaller scales to produce irregular shapes and surfaces that cannot be represented by classical geometry. Fractals are used especially in computer modeling of irregular patterns and structures in nature."

Steph, I am so glad you are part of fractals. They are so much fun, just seeing diversity. I just realized I haven't put added the really cool ones. I have a doctor's appointment, but will add some really pretty ones when I can. Welcome!

cool Joan- nice group!

I hope I joined all your wonderful groups.

Masai People, Save our Green, January 4, 2013 by DeaconBlues 

Women build their dwellings (‘manyatta’) from wood, mud and cow dung in either a star-shape or circular. Within this space, the family cooks, eats, sleeps, socializes, and stores food, fuel, and other household possessions. Small livestock often live within this space.

African Fractals: Modern Computing and Indigenous Design

Fractals characterize repetition of similar patterns at ever-diminishing scales. Fractal geometry emerge as an exciting frontier on the border between mathematics and information technology. Seen in many of the swirling patterns produced by computer graphics it exists as a new tool for modeling in biology, geology, and other natural sciences.

Anthropologists observed patterns produced in different cultures can be characterized by specific design themes.

In Europe and USA, cities grew, laid out in a grid pattern of straight streets and right-angle corners or round-abouts with roads leading away from the center.

In traditional African settlements they tend to use fractal structure --circles of circles of circular dwellings, rectangular walls enclosing ever-smaller rectangles, and streets in which broad avenues branch down to tiny footpaths with striking geometric repetition.

These indigenous fractals do not limit architecture; their recursive patterns echo throughout many different African and Native American designs and knowledge systems. Mathematics at work.
