Fractals in Nature or Nature in FractalsHere is a Feature as part of the :iconcommunityrelations: Project Educate: Fractals Week 2011!Fractals in Nature or Nature in Fractals by =LaxmiJayaraj
By now you may be knowing what Fractals are...so many other features here explained it clearly...so I'm not going to define it....
In one of his speeches, Mandel Brot, Father of Fractals, explains how he construct the geometry of things which have no geometry....
..ie, shape of Clouds, shape of Coast lines, shape of trees etc...He named it as Fractal geometry!
Self similarity is the main characteristic feature of these naturally occurring things around us...If you observe the structure of our Lungs,
structure of our Nervous System & Structure of Blood vessels we can see this phenomenon.
So we can say that we are breathing through our Fractal Lungs!!! Our blood is flowing through Fractal Veins etc...
In short Fractals are there in nature and we Fractalists try to create nature through Fractals using different Fractal generating programs....
Here are some examples....
