Randomness as the origin of creativity

test731b

When looking at the creative advances in technology, art, science or society that really changed the story of humanity, we see that they are all quantum leaps. What does that mean? It means that true innovation requires a departure from Continue reading Randomness as the origin of creativity

When genetic fractals mate: select the fittest and cross-breed

genetic-fractakl-cross-1

You may have had the impression that “genetic” in “genetic fractals” was just a conceptual term to convey a notion that these fractals have a link with life. Actually, these fractals are build on a genetic code that is mathematical Continue reading When genetic fractals mate: select the fittest and cross-breed

Images from a genetic fractal universe

Back in 2014 I excitedly announced the birth of a genetic fractal universe in my post “postcard from a new universe”. I then went on and blogged about spring and the joys of travel. Such are the meanderings of a distracted mind. But that new universe Continue reading Images from a genetic fractal universe

The nature of randomness

Randomness has a bad name. It is closely associated with chaos, unintended, unreliable, misguided and pointless. Strangely enough, randomness is at the very root of order. It is the cause of diversity in nature and guards us against descent into oblivion. Let’s celebrate randomness in this post. Continue reading The nature of randomness

Epiphanic explorational moments

Over the holiday period, my mind tends to find its way out. Out as in, out of the rut and constraints of the life I have built around me. Out as in, out of these self-inflicted boundaries that keep me safe and stupid. Continue reading Epiphanic explorational moments

Recently a colleague asked me about Genetic Fractals. That surprised me because I don’t really talk about this stuff at work. As it turned out, he didn’t ask me about Genetic Fractals but I misunderstood a tangential reference to TED and I launched into a lecture on my theories of genetic fractals as a Theory of Everything starting from the creation of the universe. Continue reading The end of it all

In yesterdays post I mentioned 3D genetic printers. These printers will be on board of spacecraft on missions to planets that may sustain life. If life is already present then these spacecraft will pursue their mission elsewhere. Otherwise, they will seek the oceans to complete their tasks.
