Do you remember my heroes from yesterday’s post? You are all part of an amazingly magical network of fractals, I guess… Fractals, for me, who am not a mathematician, belong to that magical aspect of nature. I mentioned that yesterday too. Human nature and the patterns of our lives are like fractal geometry.
Benoit Mandelbrot, that amazing person who discovered and wrote the book The Fractal Geometry of Nature, made it happen for me again today, with wordlessness, oneness (which is the second stage of magic technology according to Martha Beck), and tears in my eyes.
For weeks I had the photo above on my desk, wondering when I would use it and for what. Today, when I discovered the Fractal Geometry of Nature (the book), I knew the photo’s time had come.
It’s difficult to explain, but since I’ve started practicing these wordlessness and oneness techniques, fractal magic seems to take place. Connections with people I haven’t seen or heard from for a long time, from close by or from far away.
Benoit Mandelbrot said: “No one is alone in this world. No act is without consequences for others. It is a tenet of chaos theory that, in dynamical systems, the outcome of any process is sensitive to its starting point.”
It’s been two days since I have had an undefined sensation of this. Serendipity is another word that comes to mind.
But then there’s this: “My life seemed to be a series of events and accidents. Yet when I look back, I see a pattern.”
And I feel that too, very strongly. People and events come together as if in a magical pattern I could not discern before. The discovery of this is a magical experience indeed.
It’s incredible how people we never knew can touch us so profoundly and confirm our present feelings beyond time and space.
You can do that now, no matter where you are in the world, in the comments below. the patterns of our life
