FRACTAL WHAT IS A FRACTAL?

FRACTAL               WHAT IS A FRACTAL?

OUR DAILY WISDOM WORD TODAY IS “FRACTAL”.  WHAT IS A FRACTAL AND WHAT MADE ME CHOOSE THE WORD?  I LOVE THE ARTIST “SEAL” AND HIS MUSIC.. ONE OF HIS SONGS IS TITLED, “CRAZY”.  THE LYRICS ARE DEFINITELY THIS.  BEFORE GOING ANY FURTHER, LET US TAKE A LOOK AT FRACTALS DEFINITION IN THE WEBSTER DICTIONARY AND SKIP THE DAILY WISDOM WORD DEFINITION. 

WEBSTER DEFINITION OF FRACTAL-A CURVE OR GEOMETRIC FIGURE, EACH PART OF WHICH HAS THE SAME STATISTICAL CHARACTER AS A WHOLE.  FRACTALS ARE USEFUL IN MODELING STRICTURES (SUCH AS ENDED COASTLINES OR SNOWFLAKES IN WHICH SIMILAR PATTERNS RECUR IN PROGRESSIVELY SMALLER  SCALES AND IN DESCRIBING PARTLY RANDOM OR CHAOTIC PHENOMENA SUCH AS CRYSTAL GROWTH, FLUID TURBULENCE AND GALAXY FORMATION.   

WOW, WHAT DOES ALL OF THIS MEAN SIMPLIFIED?  I BELIEVE FRACTALS TO BE A MATHEMATICAL TERM AND USEFUL TO CALCULATE A PATTERN REPEATING ITSELF IN SMALLER SIZES WHEN REPLICATED.  I THOUGHT IT MIGHT BE INTERESTING TO CHOOSE A WORD TODAY NEW TO ME BUT IF YOU ARE A GEOMETRY WIZARD, I AM SURE YOU ALREADY KNOW THE MEANING. 

FRACTALS ARE USED IN SEAL’S SONG, “CRAZY”, IN THIS LINE:  “I SEE YOU BEHIND A FRACTAL IN THE WALL”. 

I BELIEVE FRACTALS ARE FASCINATING AFTER LOOKING AT PICTURES OF THEM.  THEY ARE QUITE BEAUTIFUL AND IF I WERE A MATHEMATICIAN, I WOULD PROBABLY KNOW THE FORMULA A COMPUTER USES WHEN CREATING A FRACTAL.

IN THE DEFINITION FROM WEBSTER, FRACTALS REFER TO OUR GALAXY FORMATION ALSO.  THIS MUST BE BECAUSE PLANETS SHAPED SO MUCH ALIKE DO REFLECT THEMSELVES OFTEN SMALLER THAN THEY ARE WHEN WE SEE THEM ON P  I BELIEVE FRACTALS HAPPEN WHEN PATTERNS REPEAT THEMSELVES BUT CONTINUE TO GET SMALLER.   

IF WE LISTEN TO THE SONG THE ARTIST SEAL SINGS, HE USES IT IN A LINE OF HIS SONG, “CRAZY” LIKE THIS:  “I SEE YOU BEHIND A FRACTAL IN THE WALL”.   I FIND IT TO BE AN INTERESTING CHOICE OF WORDS.  FRACTALS CAN ALSO BE COMPUTER GENERATED AND ARE GREAT FOR PICTURES OF MOUNTAINS, WAVES, OR USE OF A FRACTAL IS A GEOMETRIC SHAPE WITH SYMMETRY TO SCALE. 

THIS MEANS THAT NO MATTER HOW MUCH IT IS LOOKED AT, IT ALWAYS LOOKS THE SAME, EVEN IF YOU LOOK AT JUST PART OF IT. THIS IS CALLED, SELF-SIMILARITY.    I HOPE FRACTALS ARE INTERESTING ENOUGH, YOU WILL LOOK INTO THEIR MEANING SO YOU MAY UNDERSTAND THEM FROM YOUR OWN PERSPECTIVE.  THANKS SO MUCH FOR READING TODAY.
