Understanding the “Why” Makes Everything More Beautiful

It intrigues me that it’s the artist (and most likely a liberal) who has no interest in diving beneath the superficial externalities of appearance.

First time I ever heard Feynman say this, I looked at a tree and thought “fractal”.

    For the record, there is such a thing as a Conservative artist. To make art does not mean that you’re a liberal and can’t think!

    (I didn’t watch the video, so if the comment is off – whoops.)

    @1 – Oh yes. Chris Muir, John Cox & Jon McNaughton, just off the top of my head.

    But statistically, their political leanings are aberrations in the art community.

    Anyway, do watch the video. It’s less about art than the appreciation of beauty.

    Feynman had a way with words and logic, didn’t he?

    In one of his videos, he shoots down the very theory he helped develop: The Standard Model of particle physics.

    Fractal geometry is the foundation of my art.
    (Although when I first got started, I called it Fractiles, because I wasn’t sure how fractal was spelled.)
    You can ask FrankJ to show you 2 samples of my work I sent him last year as a sort of belated baby-shower gift/fan art – but which he never got around to posting to the site (even though he promised). 😉

    Wish he was around to talk about “global warming”. Feynman had a leftist point of view but I can hear him saying “THAT’S NUTS! ” in response to global warming.
