I asked Steve, the maker of the video, why he chose the fractal animation, and this is what he said:  "I like the video because it's difficult to 'make anything of it.' It's dynamic, I find it wonderful, and the frequent attempts at establishing a thing, or defining a particular space are dissolved during the continual movement.  The zoom has a tendency to emphasize the shifting views or perspectives rather than conventional content. 'Whatever you think it is, keep watching, and pretty soon it won't look like that any more.' In breaking down habitual perceptual and cognitive patterns, this seems similar to moving toward third level."   As stated in the intro to the video, "...without falling into a stagnant orientation..."

Fractal iteration:

“Iteration can be described as a feedback process that repeats an n number of times. It refers to the act of performing the calculation of a certain function and then picking the result, or output, as the starting value, or input, for the next calculation of the same function. The operation repeats on and on (even infinitely), becoming iteration. Any such process will produce a fractal.”

Deconstructive iteration:

“Each singular...event is at once unique...[and] always repeatable.... Iterability implies a supplementarity that goes all the way down.”

And here's an interesting article that shows the relation of fractal geometry to deconstructive iterability. Mandelbrot's early writings were in fact about structural linguistics and economics.

The fractal video seems to indicate that there is no final whole or part, that there are just indefinite fractal bifurcations?

What paths lie ahead for religion and spirituality in the 21st Century? How might the insights of modernity and post-modernity impact and inform humanity's ancient wisdom traditions? How are we to enact, together, new spiritual visions – independently, or within our respective traditions – that can respond adequately to the challenges of our times?

This group is for anyone interested in exploring these questions and tracing out the horizons of an integral post-metaphysical spirituality.
