In The Shack there is a comparison made between the complicatedness of the human soul with the intricate design of fractals. What a wonderful comparison. The Nova special is worth the time it takes to watch it. Many scientists seem to think this just happens by chance. I think there is more to it all. And yet, I believe God has included within the mystery some randomness that we create by the exercising of our freedom to choose? Fractals can be created in art as seen the picture above and in nature as seen in the picture of the Japanese Maple leaf from my garden below. My garden is full of them and they never cease to amaze me. The Shack introduced me to them and now I see them everywhere....when I am looking at my daughters....my wife....my friends...myself in the mirror and as I walk through the amazing natural world God created. Fractals will soon be falling from the sky in our area when the ground is graced with the first snowfall. Be amazed.
"His gaze moved over the garden that surrounded them. "But it really is beautiful, and full of you, Sarayu. Even though it seems like lots of work still needs done, I feel strangely at home and comfortable here."The two looked at each other and grinned.Sarayu stepped toward him until she had invaded his personal space. "And well you should, Mackenzie, because this garden is your soul. This mess is you! Together, you and I, we have been working with a purpose in your heart. And it is wild and beautiful and perfectly in process. To you it seems like a mess, but to me, I see a perfect pattern emerging and growing and alive---a living fractal."
