Wonderful, nonetheless. :ok:


Thank you - I have indeed created those pictures, but I don´t know if I could also call these animals mine - they don´t seem to behave slighty different wether I am there or when I am not. Seldom people are so irrelevant.

Funny enough, I am quite into fractal mathematics and do believe that it closely reflects the design of nature. Considering the way these pictures were made (some have been done throughout tracing a real photo) this theory seems to be prooved somehow. Even where you do not expect it you see how things are linked.

Well, also mathematicians are natural creatures, so no matter how hard they try they simply cannot escape their own origin.

Well of course, many of the discoveries in Physics and Mathematics in the 20th for example were done by people perceiving things differently. There are many examples, but just consider Einstein and Mandelbrot. Both where thought to be crazy or foolish by their fellow scientists, but now we see they were just too different from the mainstream at that time.

There are a lot visionaries, who changed/evolved the way we understand nature. And as there are still a lot of unresolved questions I suspect there will be many more to come.

I don't think mankind will ever find more than a good trial of an explanation before - how ever - it will die out once. Errors get replaced by others which seem less wrong. But nevertheless, otherwise it would be boring.

If humanity lasts long enough it will be wrong less enough to be right. What troubles me is than there is an obvious progress in science, but I'm afraid there is a regress in culture and average intelligence.
Anyway I like your optimism. I'm also certain of an inevitable extinction. :beerchug:

But who will create this? Anyway, I don't think it is the meaning of life to explain it - or to dominate it.

Well, it is a sign for the success of a species – the more successful it gets the lesss it is necessary for the single individual to fulfil evolutionary needs. At least there are enough others to rely on. Fortunately, because an occupation as a channel digger for example is not my purpose of life.

I fear the content of people who are able to create an iPhone will decrease in contrast to the ones who use it, but hopefully I won't live to see that totally - I have survived too many worst-case-szenarios (BSE, Tschernobyl, Fukushima...) to be worried anymore.
