    Mathematics.

    I think that’s actually biology, rigth?

    tiki god:
    No no no, fractals. Fractals, you see. = mathematics. To be honest though, you could show me just about anything and I’d see a connection with mathematics so don’t try to think too hard about what I just said. It could have tremendous consequences. A vein in your brain could pop and you might never see the colour red ever again.

    Hmm, seems we both sent this picture in, good job on getting the spot.

    Exactly. See, RSI and I are on the same wavelength. He gets it. Here, have an imaginary cookie.

    I’m nearly 100% sure this is not a fractal, but is a red algae bloom.

    dieAntagonista

    tiki god:
    No way. Are you sure? You know that just because it’s made of a certain kind of material, it can still have fractals. What. I can’t even tell if you’re being humorous.

    Also, its cells are most definitely fractal. Fractal is a shape, not a material.

    I gotta agree with Tiki here. It has the fractal LOOK, but it’s not the exact same all around, making it similar, but not exactly the same like a fractal.

    dieAntagonista

    Sticky:
    Let me repeat, its cells are most definitely fractal. I know that it has only the fractal look, but the fractals don’t have to be authentic to be calculable, which made me say mathematics.

    Anyway, Tiki’s comment sounded like he thought fractal is a material, not a shape. Need I say more.

    Point taken, but I have a question for you…WHY ISN’T YO ASS ON AIM, WOMAN?!

    dieAntagonista

    Sticky:
    Good question. I’ll get back to you when I have a concrete answer.

    ..Crafty answer.
