Reading this book on fractals. It is very good and relates in interesting ways to elements of my practice. Fractals are the geometry of the natural world and are totally unlike Euclidean geometry. An example of Euclidean geometry would be the platonic solids, these shapes have been used for hundreds of years to explain fundamental human questions about reality and the universe yet this geometry appears nowhere in the natural world, it remains a very human abstract form of knowledge. Fractals on the other hand are observable ie rivers, brain, veins etc. Not only do fractals appear in this physical way but I think it might extend to thought and consciousness. Fractals seem like a more natural, solid theory to work from. I think I shall experiment with both forms of geometry, the interaction could be fruitful.
