Fractals are Cool
The prompt is chaos.
There’s a book by James Gleick called Chaos: Making of a New Science. I started reading it several years ago. I didn’t finish reading it because I wasn’t really smart enough to understand it. I’m not saying that I’m not smart. I’m just not the kind of smart you need to be to read this book. I do know that chaos theory has something to do with fractals. Fractals are cool.
I’ve also toyed with learning about physics. This was also not my thing. I listened to an audio book about physicist Richard Feynman. I understood the book because it was more about the man than the physics.
It’s like when I tried to learn computer programming. I tried and tried but found that my brain just doesn’t work that way. I finally let go of that dream.
This is a reminder to put more effort into the things I’m actually good at so I can get better at them. That’s a crazy idea isn’t it?
