A fractal is "a rough or fragmented geometric shape that can be split into parts, each of which is (at least approximately) a reduced-size copy of the whole.....dam u iab i had to learn today thanks to you. wiki fractals to get this answer

Kingpong, fractals are geometric designs based on algorithms or equations that undergo iterations, meaning that when they`re defined on a graph, they repeat themselves, or are self-similar... They repeat the patterns in smaller and smaller forms, making a design like the Mandelbrot fractal you see above.

I`m well aware of what a Mandelbrot set is, as well as its graphical representation, yet I was informed that I "had no idea what it is". I probably should have directed the question specifically to hatface.

"Mandelbrot Set, You`re a Rorschach Test on fire, You`re a day-glo pterodactyl, You`re a heart-shaped box of springs and wire, You`re one badass f***ing fractal, And you`re just in time to save the day, Sweeping all our fears away, You can change the world in a tiny way..."

The pic is made of fail, but the concept is kinda funny. Fractals sort of explode the meme because they are already infinitely iterating, so putting fractals inside fractals is, in some sense, impossible, but also theoretically greatly increases the magnitude of the fractal.

I love the concept put hate to put a dampener on this by saying the m-set doesn`t actually repeat-EVER. So there isn`t even a mandelbrot in the mandelbrot, and so doesn`t work in the meme!

that is the sound it made going over my head

You`re a day-glo pterodactyl,

You`re a heart-shaped box of springs and wire,

You`re one badass f***ing fractal,

And you`re just in time to save the day,

Sweeping all our fears away,

are you drating serious :|

Hell yes they are
