Are fractals (repeating geometric configurations) a hidden key to why some relationships work and some do not? Perhaps they can show when our body is succumbing to disease? Do fractals explain how Eastern medicine works as a preventative to disease or even a cure as it realigns those patterns? Are they why prayer can heal without looking toward a divine hand in it? Can they be used to find a greater understanding of how biological life works?
You can find online many examples of fractals. The one above belongs to Farm Boss and is on the back of our utility room door. It is called a [Mandelbrot set].
We recently watched the NOVA documentary: [Fractals: Hunting the Hidden Dimension] which I had ordered from Netflix because I knew Farm Boss was into such things. I surprised myself by finding it absolutely fascinating as I began to see other applications for fractals. The program explained, for those of us who are not scientists, what fractals are and what it looks like in the body for instance when they are ordered and then screwed up (not a scientific term but says it well). It is possible that someday they will be a way to find disease and maybe even treat it.
The idea that prayer, faith healing or reiki might treat or help treat disease has often seemed a mystery but what if it has a biological reason? It may be very physical if we consider the make-up of the physical world which is of repeating geometric patterns that are consistent and ordered-- until they are not. Perhaps we can do much to restore that alignment if we catch the onset of disease before there are symptoms and we must resort to surgery or prescriptions. If we can recognize this misalignment before we get sick, wouldn't that be the most effective palliative.
Maybe taking this into account, we can see how music helps to restore balance. If we think this way, we will realign before we get sick-- or better yet, stay in alignment all along.
I think it goes beyond medicine though to relationships. Is this why some people turn us off and others draw us to them? Repeating patterns that we can recognize and utilize could help us to order our lives and even our cultures. Too much, you think? Maybe not.
