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
On this years pi-day, it is time to come to terms with the idea that humans are somehow relevant to this universe. Both science and religion are guilty of putting humans Continue reading Pi day: Pi=3.141529 is an anthropocentric lie!
Life is a fractal. All of life is one humongous writhing fractal. We are not only “one”, as New Agers tell us, we are branches of a big tree of life that started with the first polymers. Continue reading Fractal origin of life
Notestoponder asked a simple question: “can someone explain the 4th dimension”. The responses she got were disappointing. Standard high school explanations such as “time is the fourth dimension”, or “imagine color or transparency” as a fourth dimension. Continue reading Grappling with shadows in the fourth dimension
Yesterday I introduced you to hyper genetic fractals but even as I hit the “publish” button, I knew that the images were not convincing. So after a pow-wow with John of Superstitious Naked Ape fame, I’ve created a four dimensional tree. It looks more like an aquarium plant but I’m not fuzzed. Hopefully John isn’t either. Continue reading Making sense of a four dimensional tree
This is not a coming out; I’ve been known to go on about fourth dimensions and other weird stuff like non-integer dimensions. I am otherwise relatively normal but when it comes to dimensions, I am an incurable geek. Continue reading Hyper fractals for fourth dimension geeks
So I haven’t posted anything since May 2014. Not surprising as I’m totally absorbed by work at the moment. So what happens to a blog when you don’t post? Although I’ve been with the web since it was created (I was one of the first 100 web users) and have tried everything there is do on the web at least once, just to find out what it is like, I couldn’t have guessed the answer correctly. Continue reading Pertinence of what we have to say vs blog stats
As promised, having created a new Universe, here is a postcard. I hope you weren’t expecting lush strange forests with bizarre animals at my feet; this universe is brand new and hasn’t quite inflated yet, let alone generated organic life. Let me explain. Continue reading Postcard from a new Universe
I’ve been walking around with this idea for a while now and today I realised that I have to do this: I’m going to recreate the Big Bang. Continue reading Mad scientist day: don’t try this at home
It is Pi Day today and therefore you risk to be spammed with all sorts of curious facts about pi that you never wanted to know. On planet Genetic Fractals we won’t buck that trend.
Let’s start with a philosophical question: is a secret a secret if no one knows it? Continue reading Three-point-something? So who exactly cares?
