Fractals are patterns that are self-similar across different scales. They are created by repeating a simple process over and over through a feedback loop. Fractals are the visualisation of dynamical systems and they exist between our familiar dimensions. This is called the fractal dimension. Fractal patterns are familiar, since nature is full of fractals. For instance: trees, rivers, coastlines, mountains, clouds, seashells, hurricanes, etc. Abstract fractals - such as the Mandelbrot Set - can be generated by a computer calculating a simple equation over and over. And this creates an infinitely diverse pattern.

pwwt:

don’t feel dissociative but have been consistently editing myself from using we / our / us

the internal monologue prefers to refer to the collective organization of matter and information

still feel weird about it tho

I mostly use the plural when talking to myselves about myselves.

When you fire particles over different trajectories at the same initial speed and record their highest points, the curve joining these points appears to be an ellipse. This article on arXiv presents the calculations behind this ballistic curiosity.
