Fractals anyone?

**Lambchops**:

So i was talking to mac about code to handle complex numbers the other day - which ineviably led me to waste a meap of time messing around with the mandlebrot set.

Been done a million times before, but I can't help myself..... it's just soooo pretty.

:critter:

**mousEtopher**:

i understood 1% of what you wrote but sooo pretty <3

**Lambchops**:

Yeah :) they're nice, and they literally go on forever... our human brains try to ascribe all sorts of meaning to them - flowers... galaxies... even the bhudda, but actually they're just numbers (and not even real numbers!), they don't really mean anything at all.

**Certified MENSA Genius Brain (smart)**:

i once took a college course on fractals

What they said was: Complex numbers are in the form of r+i .... where r is the real part of the number and i is the imaginary part of the number. Fractal images are basically a graph of a particular function involving complex numbers that have the real part on the X-axis and the imaginary part on th Y-axis ..... sound familiar? ;)
