1 + 1 does not equal 2 : if it does it is only half the answer, the other half lies in understanding chaos and fractals.

The definition of (or insight from) the fractal is: same but different (or regular irregularity) - at all scales.

Fractals show us how no one object is the same, they are complex, they are

**different**.

The

**'same**' component of the definition is quantitative, and met or described as the 1 + 1.

The

**different**is qualitative and describes (at least) the diversity, complexity or unpredictability of the object.

Update 2015

I have long thought about the my early entry and now know more. If 2 identical objects are added together, they equal 1. They are indistinguishable. I have also leant this is an assumption at the quantum level where particles are assumed to be identical; more support to my fractal quantum theory.

I plan to write all this up in one paper as soon as I can.
