A Font-astic quote on Fractals..!

Fractal Universe! :)

Hi pa..!!

Please click on the below image, download it if you please,  observe it...after reading it..!

Would you believe that it took almost 45 minutes to carefully "type" out the above paragraph..?? :) You may find the book mentioned above, but you will never find it in a way presented above.

Just notice the minute details, like for example, the way the words "cold" & "dry"  (the quotes around them rather !) have been 'rendered', as also the fact that "i" is/am wearing a "hat" too...!!! ;-) :)

This is in fact, the opening paragraph of the magnum-opus of Benoit Mandelbrot (notice the right way to spell his name)--"The Fractal Geometry of Nature", which took the world by storm, & almost single-handedly elevated Fractals into the realm of the believable, rather than being mocked upon as 'silly program artefacts' that have no practical applications or implications what-so-ever...! It now turns out that Fractals & Chaos are at the 'heart' of almost every Physical phenomenon or manifestations of the Universe...!!

I am really shocked to find people who routinely ask me --"WHAT use is OLL this mathematics of?? It does not have any practical use..." That is the farthest from the TruTh anyone could ever get! :-)

Anyway, I just wanted to share this fantastic piece of quote by 'dressing it up' with an amount of care perhaps never given to it before..! Hope you liked it, & it makes you (p/w)onder pa...?

I should soon make some FRESH starts...of discoveries, & this has really inspired me indeed...! :-)

I wonder if...if...
"our universe is itself, a fractal...?!??" :)

Love & Best Wishes,
