I came into this world in the midst of the Second World War, appearing among the soaring academic towers of Cambridge – the last outpost of ‘civilisation’ before the black-soiled, windswept fens ran their endless way up to King’s Lynn and The Wash. I grew up in the austere and reactionary spirit of post-war England. People felt lucky to be alive. So many had died and there were shortages. Most of our ships had been sunk and we lived under the heavy-hanging threat of nuclear annihilation.

“The word “fractal” was coined in 1975 by the Polish/French/American mathematician, Benoît Mandelbrot (b. 1924), to describe shapes which are detailed at all scales.”
Nigel Lesmoir-Gordon, Introducing Fractals: A Graphic Guide

“We know that different regions in the brain process shape, colour, and motion. Benoit Mandelbrot has hypothesized that perhaps there is a specific circuit in the brain to deal with fractal complexity.”
Nigel Lesmoir-Gordon, Introducing Fractal Geometry

“The abstract, curvilinear motifs of ancient Islamic decorative art found in mosaics and carpet design appear again and again at all scales of magnification on the boundary of the Mandelbrot set.”

“Happiness for a reason is just another form of misery because the reason can be taken away from us at any time.”
Deepak Chopra

“Forget the past,” Sri Yukteswar would console him. “The vanished lives of all men are dark with many shames. Human conduct is ever unreliable until man is anchored in the Divine. Everything in future will improve if you are making a spiritual effort now.”
