I've only skimmed this thread so far, but, holy shit, you have to watch this video:

http://www.ted.com/talks/richard_preston_on_the_giant_trees.html

Apparently Redwoods are 6-layer fractals! If you want to skip ahead, he goes into it just after the 9 minute mark or so.

I explosively shit my pants at that part.

fuck me. FUCK ME.

There is nothing not amazing about redwoods.

Right?

Being a bit of a treehugging eco-terrorist myself, I do recommend the whole video.

I may cram another layer of Crams and turn it into a poster if Cram is comfortable with the prospect of widespread public crammage.

I think the basic idea is older than (the concept of) fractals. Not just the homology between the microcosm and the macrocosm, but the notion of countless intermediate layers...

As soon as a saw "Fractal Cult" I was like "Yup, you don't have to say shit, I'm on board this already"
Standing above the crowd,
He had a voice that was strong and loud and I
Swallowed his facade cuz I'm so
Eager to identify with
Someone above the ground,
Someone who seemed to feel the same,
Someone prepared to lead the way, and
Someone who would die for me.

Will you? Will you now?
Would you die for me?
Don't you fuckin lie.

When a pamphlet is put together, a lot of these graphics will go well in it

working on the text for a booklet

I've pasted relevant parts of this thread and expanded on some stuff

http://principiadiscordia.com/cramulus/index.php?title=Fractal_Cult


I would love to hear more thoughts on this, or perhaps you guys can point me to more images or quotes which support the thing

Another concept that I read about in "The Black Swan" is that of Scaling and Self-similarity, that what things look like on a small level is what they look like on a larger level-
I can't find the pictures he uses in the book online, but there is a great picture of a lens cap against some "sand", which when zoomed out is revealed that it's actually an oversized giant lens cap next to a human and it's actually the side of a mountain.

need to do some revisions

was panicking about something today and I tried to calm myself by visualizing the fern

but it really just made things worse

the leaflets on the fern became all the other things I was stressed about

I am intrigued by this thread. I've read the first page but it seems to resonate. Will have to bookmark and read the rest later. It fits well with my premise that "In the small things, can the large be measured".

I like the way you think, Cramulus. And it scares me. :P
