Une réalité mathématique dessinée en fractales par un homme atteint par le syndrome du savant

Une réalité mathématique dessinée en fractales par un homme atteint par le syndrome du savant
Jason Padgett est un américain qui a acquis, sans le vouloir, des capacités étonnantes en mathématiques après une agression en 2002. Il a été durement touché à la tête et il vit maintenant la réalité sous forme de fractales mathématiques descriptibles par des équations. Il est atteint du syndrome du savant qui lui permet désormais de pratiquer une forme de synesthésie. Image d’entête : “une main quantique à travers mes yeux” (J.Padgett) Avant l’incident, Jason ne possédait aucune capacité particulière en math, il était même plutôt mauvais. Il a copié la plupart des réponses à son examen de géométrie dans l’enseignement secondaire et n’a jamais eu beaucoup d’intérêt pour cette matière. Ci-dessous : “trou noir de Planck”. “Dualité onde-particule” “Une dérive dans l’espace-temps” Selon la bio de Jason Padgett : “Cosinus sinusoïdale et ondes tangente” “Fusion hW=MC^2” “L’expérience des doubles fentes” (Fentes de Young) Vous pouvez admirer d’autres œuvres de Jason Padgett sur Fine art america.

London, UK artist Douglas McDougall Girl that Never Ages: Could She Hold the Key to 'Biological Immortality' (Video) Gabby Williams (Photo : YouTube/Screen Shot ) Scientists are looking into a disorder that prevents aging and may possibly hold the key to eternal youth. Yet the health issue is so rare that no medical term has been used to diagnose the condition. Like Us on Facebook Meet Gabby Williams, who carries both the facial features and skin of a newborn, weighing only 11 pounds, but is 8 years old. Doctors who have been studying this medical rarity have found a handful of cases around the globe similar to Gabby's, but are still plagued by what genetic marker stops the aging process from turning on. TLC television will be airing similar stories on Monday, Aug. 19, regarding the rare disorder at 10 p.m. "In some people, something happens to them and the development process is retarded," said medical researcher Richard F. Walker, who conducts research at All Children's Hospital in St. "My whole career has been focused on the aging process," he said, via the news organization. Want to see Gabby?

Earthing, the Benefits of Connecting with Earth’s Energy There is a resurgence of age-old concepts to keep up with the deteriorating ever-changing environment – from using natural remedies, alternative healing to yoga/meditation or even a simple act of walking barefoot on earth, known as ‘Grounding/ Earthing’. Throughout time humans and even plants, animals, have always been in closer contact with the Earth, but unfortunately, the modern lifestyle has disconnected us from the Earth’s energy, making us more vulnerable to stress and illness. Remember your childhood days when walking barefoot in the garden was refreshing and didn’t you love the feeling of tender grass/green blades caressing your skin. Now there is a scientific reason to why the contact with Mother Earth makes you feel good and how we desperately need it in present times. Earthing is nature’smost powerful antioxidant that neutralizes the excessive free radicals inyour body Earthing can be done by walking barefoot and/or sitting outside on the lawn, dirt, or sand. Dr.

Esthétique de la complexité fractale - Arts / Numérisation / Fractals 1. Beauté antique / Beauté fractale Trois autres articles de ce blog : (1) Géométrie fractale / Art fractal, (2) Fractales numériques / Esthétique du transitoire, et (3) Dimension fractale / Science et Art de l'analogie universelle, évoquent sous différents angles conceptuels la transposition de la géométrie des objets fractals, êtres mathématiques idéaux, aux figures fractales informatiques (dites « Fractales ») qui les concrétisent d'innombrables manières, au moyen de formes et de couleurs les plus variées et séduisantes pour l'esprit autant que pour les yeux. Nous posons ici la question de la valeur esthétique proprement dite de ces fractales, autrement dit de leur beauté supposée. combinées entre elles, régulières, bien ordonnées, finies, délimitées, symétriques, c'est-à-dire étymologiquement : dont toutes les parties sont commensurables (mesurables) entre elles par des rapports de nombres finis. 2.

Silhouette – Un designer détourne la silhouette de sa fille toutes les semaines Silhouette – Un designer détourne la silhouette de sa fille toutes les semaines Le graphic designer Brent Holloman s’amuse à détourner chaque semaine la silhouette de sa fille en utilisant toutes les techniques possibles : illustration, photographie, calligraphie, en fumée, en carte, en viande, en bois, en diagramme, en fil, à la craie, sur une pomme, et même en urinant dans la neige… Un bel exercice qui fera plaisir à sa fille quand elle sera plus grande ! via Brent Holloman

How To Slow The Ageing Process? - The Solution Is In Your Genes - A new study provides evidence that aging works through a special set of genes that everyone has - the rDNA genes. "This work is exciting because it shows that rDNA instability is a new factor in aging," says Dr Austen Ganley from Massey University, New Zealand. An international team, led by Dr Takehiko Kobayashi from the National Institute of Genetics in Mishima, Japan found that by improving the stability of the rDNA genes, which are usually quite unstable, they could extend the lifespan of baker's yeast, a model system for studying cell aging. The researchers set out to understand how the Sir2 gene reduces aging in yeast. The yeast Sir2 gene controls rDNA stability, but also has many other targets in the cell. This allowed them to show that Sir2's anti-aging effect comes exclusively through stabilisation of the rDNA genes.

The Flexible Paper Sculptures of Li Hongbo What at first look like delicate works of carved porcelain are actually thousands of layers of soft white paper, carved into busts, skulls, and human forms by Beijing artist Li Hongbo. A book editor and designer, the artist became fascinated by traditional Chinese toys and festive decorations known as paper gourds made from glued layers of thin paper which can be stored flat but then opened to reveal a flower or other shape. He applied the same honeycomb-like paper structure to much larger human forms resulting in these highly flexible sculptures. Girl Who Can Start Fire With Her Brain Mystifies Scientists - Many think this young girl has supernatural abilities and scientists are puzzled by what she has accomplished so far. She is now being called a global scientific phenomenon. According to the family, their 11-year-old daughter has a bizarre ability to set things aflame by just being near them. The young Vietnamese girl living in HCM City's Tan Binh District has drawn a great deal of attention from the nation's media. Her father tells it all started about a month ago when the family home's electrical network suffered several short circuits, about a month ago. Electricians were called to fix the short circuit but could not find the cause behind the power failures. A fan in the house was partially burned He said the girl was taken to other houses where the same phenomenon took place each time. The girl has been examined by doctors at Cho Ray Hospital and the Children's Hospital No. 2 but nothing abnormal has been found. Burned ceiling in the girl's family house. Prof.

Mandelbulb: The Unravelling of the Real 3D Mandelbrot Fractal Opening Pandora's Box For the Second Time ur story starts with a guy named Rudy Rucker, an American mathematician, computer scientist and science fiction author (and in fact one of the founders of the cyberpunk science-fiction movement). Around 20 years ago, along with other approaches, he first imagined the concept behind the potential 3D Mandelbulb (barring a small mistake in the formula, which nevertheless still can produce very interesting results - see later), and also wrote a short story about the 3D Mandelbrot in 1987 entitled "As Above, So Below" (also see his blog entry and notebook). So the idea slumbered for 20 years until around 2007. Although the second one looks somewhat impressive, and has the appearance of a 3D Mandelbulb very roughly, we would expect the real deal to have a level of detail far exceeding it. Zooming in reveals some interesting detail, but I didn't find a great deal beyond the usual chaos. Full size shown here. Is this merely a fool's quest? WOW!
