I want to learn this science. Is there anyone here capable, and more so, willing to help me learn?

If you really want to learn Fractal Geometry,use the internet,you can find a lot of good information.

I only charge $8 an hour to tutor students,
$16 an hour to tutor minors,
and $32 an hour comercial.

Seeing as this is the internet, I'll have to make a new category. $64 an hour.

It requires a great deal of Math; in fact you have to be able to deal with differential equations and that is pretty advanced stuff.

How's your Math?

Pick up "The Fractal Geometry of Nature" by Benoit Mandelbrot and go to town.

Looks like David has given you a little 'Egyptian' Math puzzle to figure out...

There's a solid book on complex analysis that ought to point you in the right direction. Here's a link: usf.usfca.edu...

For starters you should replace science with math. Teach your self. You have the world knowledge at your finger tips. All you have to do is search. I found that drawing sacred geometry really helps one understand the concepts behind fractal geometry. If you cant draw use a program like photo shop, flash or even windows paint. Start with the seed of life. You should color it in so that one side reflects the other, or so that each 4 corners match each other. You will learn allot just by drawing sacred geometry. If you do not have a understanding of PHI then dont even touch fractal geometry.

Fractals have been a passionate subject for me for awhile - and I see some great resources already recommended to you in earlier reply posts.

I have another that might be of interest, but first I should ask - is your interest in the subject based exclusively in the mathematical concepts, etc., or is it piqued by the way fractals find their way into our Universe? I ask because great sources for one would not necessarily translate to the other, and I don't want to recommend something out of your "interest zone."

Thank you everyone for your wisdom and input. I just watched a Nova special on Fractal Geometry. It really sparked my interest. However, I have no foundation in geometry, and only a practical foundation of functional math at best. Guess I had better sign up for one more lifetime if I want to learn this stuff lol.

A nice introductory fractal is the Sierpinski triangle/carpet. You can plot this yourself in Excel and it's super simple. This shape comes right out of Pascal's triangle (itself one of the most interesting objects in fundamental number theory). It also comes out of the boolean logical AND operation: en.wikipedia.org...

Here's a good video on how to plot it in Excel/Openoffice calc etc: www.youtube.com...

This object was used widely by medieval Italian masons/marblers called the Cosmati - these guys knew a lot about sacred geometry and important underlying mathematical laws of nature.

Some amazingly cool stuff is coming out of the Mandlebulb fractal recently:

Fractals in nature. As I mentioned, my foundation in math is functional at best, and I have no foundation in geometry at all. Still, I've always noticed and have been aware of the asymmetrical and infinite patterns of forms, living or inert, since I could remember. I just never know it had a name.

Here is something close to the Sierpinski triangle in nature:

If you understand how this algorithm works, you understand something fundamental about nature and computation.
