Jonathan Coulton - Mandelbrot Set

Pathological monsters! cried the terrified mathematician

Every one of them is a splinter in my eye

I hate the Peano Space and the Koch Curve

I fear the Cantor Ternary Set

And the Sierpinski Gasket makes me want to cry

And a million miles away a butterfly flapped its wings

On a cold November day a man named Benoit Mandelbrot was born

His disdain for pure mathematics and his unique geometrical insights

Left him well equipped to face those demons down

He saw that infinite complexity could be described by simple rules

He used his giant brain to turn the game around

And he looked below the storm and saw a vision in his head

A bulbous pointy form

He picked his pencil up and he wrote his secret down

Take a point called Z in the complex plane

Let Z1 be Z squared plus C

And Z2 is Z1 squared plus C

And Z3 is Z2 squared plus C and so on

If the series of Z’s should always stay

Close to Z and never trend away

That point is in the Mandelbrot Set

Mandelbrot Set you’re a Rorschach Test on fire

You’re a day-glo pterodactyl

You’re a heart-shaped box of springs and wire

You’re one badass fucking fractal

And you’re just in time to save the day

Sweeping all our fears away

You can change the world in a tiny way

Mandelbrot’s in heaven, at least he will be when he’s dead

Right now he’s still alive and teaching math at Yale

He gave us order out of chaos, he gave us hope where there was none

And his geometry succeeds where others fail

If you ever lose your way, a butterfly will flap its wings

From a million miles away, a little miracle will come to take you home

Just take a point called Z in the complex plane

Let Z1 be Z squared plus C

And Z2 is Z1 squared plus C

And Z3 is Z2 squared plus C and so on

If the series of Z’s should always stay

Close to Z and never trend away

That point is in the Mandelbrot Set

Mandelbrot Set you’re a Rorschach Test on fire

You’re a day-glo pterodactyl

You’re one badass fucking fractal

And you’re just in time to save the day

Sweeping all our fears away

You can change the world in a tiny way

And you’re just in time to save the day

Sweeping all our fears away

You can change the world in a tiny way

Go on change the world in a tiny way

Come on change the world in a tiny way

Wir müssen wissen. Wir werden wissen. --David Hilbert

Translation: We must know. We will know.

Any one who considers arithmetical methods of producing random digits is, of course, in a state of sin. --John Von Neumann

Philosophy is written in this grand book— I mean the universe— which stands continually open to our gaze, but it cannot be understood unless one first learns to comprehend the language in which it is written. It is written in the language of mathematics, and its characters are triangles, circles, and other geometric figures, without which it is humanly impossible to understand a single word of it; without these, one is wandering about in a dark labyrinth. --Galileo Galilei (1623)

Aus dem Paradies, das Cantor uns geschaffen, soll uns niemand vertreiben können. --David Hilbert

(No one shall expel us from the Paradise that Cantor has created.)

You should call it entropy, for two reasons. In the first place your uncertainty function has been used in statistical mechanics under that name, so it already has a name. In the second place, and more important, no one really knows what entropy really is, so in a debate you will always have the advantage. --John Von Neumann (a Claude Shannon)

Mathematics consists of proving the most obvious thing in the least obvious way. --George Pólya

A mathematician is a blind man in a dark room looking for a black cat which isn't there. --Charles Darwin

Young man, in mathematics you don't understand things. You just get used to them. --John von Neumann (a Felix T. Smith)

When a philosopher says something that is true then it is trivial. When he says something that is not trivial then it is false. --Carl Friedrich Gauss

If I were to awaken after having slept for a thousand years, my first question would be: Has the Riemann hypothesis been proven? --David Hilbert
