"A sincere artist is not one who makes a faithful attempt to put on to canvas what is in front of him, but one who tries to create something which is, in itself, a living thing. ~ William Dobell The image above represents two kinds of chaos. One is a quantum mechanical one that shows a random quantum wave on the surface of a sphere; the second one is the classical one that depicts chaotic electron paths launched over a range of angles from a particular point. Don’t get confused with such high scientific terms. Have you ever thought about what it would be like to look from the top down into a three dimensional perfect crystal? Or a superposition of 21 plane waves? Or maybe an image of a quasicrystal, showing some aspects of a crystalline order? Scientist Dr. Eric J. Heller has come forward with very interesting research work that involves the theoretical investigation of wave behavior, chaos and quantum mechanics and collision theory." -
