A momentous morning for me.  Copernicus and Galileo were my inspirations, and after (this morning) uncovering and clearing some critical details, I’m now not afraid anymore – to speak, to show. Last month, I published on my blog two entries I had been working on for the previous 5 years: one on the fractal record of CO2 and the other on the fractal profile of CO2 (still in progress). (   and ). This morning, I published a complementary ‘wiki website ( ) to these entries that will show and democratise ‘the where(?)’ (the examples of phenomena – at all scales) (or not!). Where does a phenomenon do as it is ‘said’ to do? Orbiting bodies and a sun-centred ‘universe’ is a good case: before the telescope and evidence, a world of dogma, and after, a world of ‘science’.

The human mind can imagine the afterlife and so must survive; religions have evolved to meet this demand. This survival theory may also explain secular religions. 1         Introduction The fractal, far from being only exciting images and complex mathematics, is also – as I am personally discovering – an instrument of great insight that complements science and its ‘mission’ to understand and explain the workings of the universe. I have been attempting to decipher and understand this instrument; from classical economics to evolution, and even in quantum mec
