This post may not make perfect sense and is 'fuzzy', even for me. But on seeing Mandelbrot's geometric representation of his equation for "fractal reality" aka infinity, I was reminded of the Eastern Om or Aum symbol, which also represents infinity.
Here they are.
This is a Bangla Aum sign (from Bangladesh). I have deliberately chosen a simple rather than a more stylised version of the Aum symbol, to make the point. Some of them are more complicated.
Bangla symbol for infinity
Mandelbrot's geometric representation of infinity:
And this is Mandelbrot's in action, carrying out the calculation for infinity.
Here is what the 4,000 year old Indian scriptures say about the sound, or vibration, Om or Aum.
"The goal, which all Vedas declare, which all austerities aim at, and which humans desire when they live a life of continence, I will tell you briefly it is Aum.
"The one syllable is indeed Brahman. This one syllable is the highest. Whosoever knows this one syllable obtains all that he desires.
"This is the best support; this is the highest support. Whosoever knows this support is adored in the world of Brahma." (1.2.15-17) Katha Upanishad.
"The udgitha ["the chanting", that is, the syllable om] is the best of all essences, the highest, deserving the highest place, the eighth." Chandogya Upanishad.
"tasya vacakah pranavah" which translates as, "God's voice is Aum." Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
God's voice as Aum
The 'God' here should not be confused with the Hebrew God Yahweh, or even the God as the First Cause who winds up the Newtonian clock and then sits back to let the mechanism take over until it runs down and stops altogether.
Newton's principles are dead, as far as I'm concerned anyway.
The God or Brahman referred to in these Vedic writings is a pre-Old Testament and pre-Newtonian God - which is also fast becoming a post-Newtonian one too.
This God cannot be the First Cause or the Creator, because it exists in the fourth dimension, the quantum dimension, which is beyond Time.
So this is a God who was, is and will be - and according to fractal or chaos theory - will be whatever we want it to be, according to our free will and the power of our intention, which exists in the quantum. The chaos theorists call this God the Strange Attractor. In keeping with recent posts of mine on the subject of attraction, I will be calling this God the Strange Magnetiser.
The Strange Magnetiser is not a jealous God. So when "Mary" sang to "Him": "My soul doth magnify the Lord", maybe she meant something different entirely to how we've been taught to interpret it.
"God's voice" is the sound of infinity. It is the primordial sound or vibration, Aum, underlying the philosophy that man is made in the image of God - to the extent that man has free will and he is God, or god, or that which is I AM.
This is the true God particle - and God wave too.
