52and40/24 Galaxy Formation

I grew up thinking I had an un-mathematic brain.  Yet as I’ve aged I’ve discovered my brain’s just fine with mathematics.   Science too.  Whaddya know till you retry?

Viewing an often chaotic world through an organised lens can be comforting.  I’ve found maths and science have overlap with understanding human behaviour, too.  This week, with help, I’m considering fractals;

‘Fractals are infinitely complex patterns… […] …self-similar across different scales. Driven by recursion, fractals are images of dynamic systems – the pictures of Chaos.  Fractal patterns are extremely familiar, since nature is full of fractals.’

I sang a solo in assembly at primary school.   I was not to sing with my accent.  I was to smooth it out, press it, make it like the ones on telly.  Stop it from being harsh, hard, common, comical and broad.  To make it more beautiful, for the song.

My Mum taught me to use a posh voice if you needed to be taken seriously; at work, returning something to a shop, parent’s night, church and politicians.52and39

The song was called All Alone.  Nowadays I have one voice for everything.
