I have a strange attraction to Fractals and Mandelbrot Sets.

LOL!!! I just sent that phrase on to my Dad, it will make him laugh.

Math can be and is beautiful...but trying to figure out why is where it falls down for me. I enjoy music and paintings, too...but can't produce anything others would like.

Did you read the second paragraph (near the top) of the wiki article; the first place the article mentions strange attractors?

I love Math. It's the single common thing that connects every other thing that exists.

Nothing is exempt from the absoluteness of Math.

Nothing we know of yet, anyway.

The recently discovered "Oldest Galaxy Ever" from which light takes 13.2 Billion light years to travel to us, is so facinating to me. Space is the greatest challenge to mankind. We haven't the Math to conceive of how vast space truely is.

If one were to be at that galaxy 13.2 Billion light years from us, it's hard to realize that there is a trillion times that much distance on the other side of it and in all directions.

It makes my head feel like exploding when I think of it.

Read it, understand the words...I think I am Chaotic...but, the math of it makes no sense to me. I knew/know about strange attractors, enough to create a WORD pun.

Reminds me of the time I saw an inch-worm "running" down the edge of the beautiful salad bar I had just set up. I took the lettuce back and re-rinsed it.
