“3D Thinking” Page 233 Fractals: Named after the mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot. Fractals are defined as mathematical forms that are generated using a defined set of transformations that include a scaling function whereby the set will generate a form and then infinitely break it down into scaled repeats of itself or into, more generally, self-similar patterns of many types. The operational process for generating the Mandelbrot set is based on an equation involving complex numbers, Zn+1 = Zn^2 + C. Numbers within the set are black. Colors are points not within the set but just outside it –  lightscribe 1018389
