Beautiful Complexity

We live in difficult times, more difficult, perhaps, then they should be. Or perhaps not. This website is dedicated to a multi-faceted exploration of complexity as a way to think about and interpret the challenges of our age. Its premise is is that virtually every assumption we make about our status and significance as humans is incorrect. This is our moment to reassess.

The video you see (generated by Mehrdad Garousi) illustrates the fractal / fragile beauty of our world as a recursive, layered, evolving orb of unfathomable complexity, an unfurling set in motion by a quite simple set of mathematical rules. That is the contradiction – creation as an existential messiness, liberated and disciplined by a self-contained, self-referential, abstract, and elegant logic.
