Ron Eglash on African Fractals

Posted in Africa, Educational with tags , , , , , on November 21, 2008 by inverself

This video on TED.com blew my face off. Mathmatician Ron Eglash talks about the fractal mathematics behind construction and art in african civilization. Indigenous peoples of Africa were the ONLY people to use fractal set theory in their social and civil organization! This theory was not fully understood by western academics until only 100 YEARS AGO, but when they did, they developed binary code from it, which is the foundation of all computers!!!! African priests developed random number generators for divination BY HAND.
