The Illusion of Perfection

Yesterday, Shelley Powers, author of Burningbird weblog, posted these wonderful pictures of some amazing crystals in their natural form.

Looking at the beautiful pyrite cube begs the question, how can anything in nature follow such perfect lines?

Shelley measured the cube and found that it's not a perfect square that it appears and explains that today, through an understanding and study of fractals, we know that there is more of a pattern to nature than is apparent to the naked eye.

Also, must share these jumpy hearts and stuff at abe burmeister design and some amazing art pieces by William Blaze posted in his weblog Abstract Dynamics - nomadic broadsides from the frontiers of style and information.
