but I think fractals are bad ass.
I can barely wrap my measly human intellect around the fact that images like this are all math; that these shapes are somehow written into the logic of the universe. Its not god, and its not buddha, but geeze, it seems obvious that its in some way relevant to the existence of life and the beauty that we see in life. That's why its worth emulating. My doodles tend to have lots of self-similar shapes or just resemble fractal images I've seen.
