    Benoit Mandelbrot RIP

    Some sad news - The Father of Fractals, Benoit Mandelbrot recently passed away. His work with Fractal Geometry has given the Science community new insights - May his memory be eternal - Вечная Памят!
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    Always sad to lose a great man. At least his knowledge and wisdom lives on.

    I saw a programme on TV only a couple of nights ago about this man and how the Fractal could eventually explain matter and of course the Universe.
    I don’t want a signature any more
