Earth's Fractal Labyrinth
This piece, along with Reflections of Existence Within,was inspired by my vast appreciation and interest in the beauty, balance and order found in nature. In all processes of nature, from the way plants grow and rocks form to the way in which the clouds gather and storms swirl in the sky, there is an underlying pattern and order in the apparent irregularity and chaos. The same self-similarity and reoccurrence that these patterns display is present in the branching of rivers throughout the earth and the networks of veins that meander throughout the human heart or lungs. Some theorists believe that it is these fractal patterns that form the underlying order and beauty universally appreciated in the natural world.
