Via Wikipedia:

A fractal as a geometric object generally has the following features:

  • fine structure at arbitrarily small scales
  • is too irregular to be easily described in traditional Euclidean geometric language.
  • is self-similar (at least approximatively or stochastically)
  • has a Hausdorff dimension that is greater than its topological dimension (although this requirement is not met by space-filling curves such as the Hilbert curve)
  • has a simple and recursive definition.

Due to them appearing similar at all levels of magnification, fractals are often considered to be ‘infinitely complex’. Obvious examples include clouds, mountain ranges and lightning bolts. However, not all self-similar objects are fractals — for example, the real line (a straight Euclidean line) is formally self-similar but fails to have other fractal characteristics.

Personally, I could just look at them all day long….


Today’s Sosan Moment


Good morning!

Snow halfway up my calves, freezing temperatures, light refracting off all that whiteness… and I am blessed to wake up to the following quote:

Emptiness here, Emptiness there, but the infinite universe stands always before our eyes. Infinitely large and infinitely small; no difference, for definitions have vanished and no boundaries are seen. So too with Being and non-Being. Don’t waste time in doubts and arguments that have nothing to do with this. One thing, all things: move among and intermingle, without distinction. To live in this realization is to be without anxiety about non-perfection. To live in this faith is the road to non-duality, because the non-dual is one with the trusting mind.


The Way is beyond language, for in it there is
no yesterday
no tomorrow
no today.

Have a great day, my friends….
