So… if you don’t believe that repeating something simple might produce something beautiful and complex and apparently impossibly akin to natural well think again.
The following shape is based on the simple formula : zn+1 = zn2 + c
So Much more can be achieved just graphically using this type of theory …

This is a speech by this man and I found it particularly inspiring, next time you watch a movie like “Jurassic Park ” all the way to “Avatar” think this man made it possible together with other impressive minds that came before like Gottfried Leibniz.

He is in my humble opinion a person who built a bridge between the human mind and the universe around.
