Fractals and the implication they may be at the heart of existence has been weighing on my thoughts.
According to the Merriam-Webster online dictionary a fractal is “any of various extremely irregular curves or shapes for which any given part is similar in shape to a given larger or smaller part when magnified or reduced to the same size”.
I wonder if the universe could be a fractal of infinite complexity experiencing itself and consciousness is the manifestation of this focus within the infinite godmind. Now here is where I am stepping completely into conjecture and whoo whoo hippie purple land. Our universe has a mathematical stamp impregnated in all things referred to as the Fibonacci sequence (1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34 etc.) a ratio that’s mathematics shape the rotation of DNA, the spiral of galaxies, a snails shell, the geometry of leaves; in essence the flavor of our universe. If other universes exist they may be numerous or each a unique fractal. Is any part of our existence an interaction between fractals? Stephen Hawking describes membrane universes interacting causing the creation of new universes in his book “The Universe in a Nutshell” My brain spins and melts into infinity when I think of the popular theory that each black hole might lead to a unique universe filled with an infinite number of black holes. Now let’s just send the wonky thought experiment into hyper drive. What if technology is a manifestation of our fractal universe and has its own drive reflective of the will of man? I see technology as a force in the universe expanding out from the super organism of mankind much like a wave propagates from a boats bow. Technology sees only the destination not the path it carves; it is a yin to our yang. Humans have heart and can guide the technological will of the universe. I automatically want to conquer the great question of light vs dark, good vs evil, matter vs anti-matter and I can’t help but think about entropy.
According to the Merriam-Webster online dictionary 2b, Entropy is “the degradation of the matter and energy in the universe to an ultimate state of inert uniformity”.
Ultimately without consciousness a fractal will naturally balance.
If you have read “The War Of Art by Steven Pressfield” you may appreciate this cherry. Resistance is consciousness expressing entropy.
So what does any of this mean? Heaven might just be a fractal that’s scale tipped to yang 🙂
