‘I am a mathematician, and I would like to stand on your roof.’ That is how Ron Eglash greeted many African families he met while researching the fractal patterns heâd noticed in villages across the continent.
Fractals, man. Fractals.
This crap is fascinating, seriously.
dang this was posted years ago, i can’t believe it’s still being reblogged
Never too old or too young for fractals. Fractals be timeless.
I’m so glad religion/spirituality and marriage and the family are subjects taken very seriously and researched and studied and taught by professors and all that jazz. Some people might say “Oh those things are so wishy-washy and unscientific, they’re not really worth studying.” (I mean, I’m sure somebody would say that or has said it) but they are essential to the human experience. They are so important in practically all of our lives; we need to learn as much as we can about them - and we do (or somebody does, and publishes what they find), and I guess I consider that a blessing.
