The year 1990, when the discovering of fractals just being popularized by different authors, there was a very nice educational film from the Cornell University, where one of the legends of fractals, John Hamal Hubbard, (not the Hubbard that created the Scientology) holds a popular lecture that must be seen by all fractal lovers,

The Beauty and Complexity of the Mandelbrot Set

(← click)

The one and a quarter long video is divided into 4 sections,


The lecture includes, formula writing on the board, computer demonstrations, beautiful fractal slides, a zoom animation, and also drawing fractals by hand :omg: The computer he is doing his pedagogical computer experiments on is a Macintosh IIcx, which also was my very first computer :love: Regarding the slides and the zoom animations it's funny to hear when he talks about “if having enough of money to buy a super computer”, when todays ordinary laptops might perform the same job on a small amount of time :lol:

The only foreknowledge of math to fully achieve the content is that of “Complex Numbers”. That can be achieved by reading my 2-page article, Complex Number Plane from my Chaotic series ;) For those of you being fascination of PART III, you may follow up by reading my Mathematical Playtime series, starting with my journal Mathematical Playtime 1. Then 8 succession journal follows :thumbsup:

So forget your math allergy, just lean you back and enjoy the show of the man that performed the initial scientific research of the Mandelbrot set the years after it was discovered by professor Benoit Mandelbrot ..

Journal History

What do you think and feel about the ten comandments on the Georgia Guide Stones) Read my journal… before answering 

7 deviants said Those commandments are only a ploy, even if carved on stones, by those unknown wealthy people with too much money
6 deviants said Those commandments are quite seriously meant by a wealthy elite, they don't wanna have more than ½ billion of people in the earth and thus wanna about 90% of the current population of more than 7 billions to disappear

My very pleasure :XD: You are are great fractal artist :clap: Maybe you would appreciate my Chaotic series of fractal articles (<- click) if you have a little theoretical interest ;)

Regarding deep zooms in the Mandelbrot set, if you check out my deviation Cauliflowerfort and click the link under "Artist's Comments", from page 4 you can follow the entire zoom sequence in 28 steps :wow:

In this journal you have some links to cool fractal animations I stumbled over at YouTube. Also check out the zoom videos in this journal :wow:

.. and from the middle of the nineties there is a fantastic TV program about fractals, Colors of Infinity by Arthur Clarke :) Really beautiful soundtracks by Pink Floyd :aww:
