Angels are the people you meet who show you the most extraordinary things. They may help you overcome adversity, protect you from danger or remind you of who you truly are. Then they completely vanish from your life— just as suddenly as they appeared.
A fractal is an object or quantity that displays self-similarity, in a somewhat technical sense, on all scales. The object need not exhibit exactly the same structure at all scales, but the same “type” of structures must appear on all scales. A plot of the quantity on a log-log graph versus scale then gives a straight line, whose slope is said to be the fractal dimension. The prototypical example for a fractal is the length of a coastline measured with different length rulers. The shorter the ruler, the longer the length measured, a paradox known as the coastline paradox.
love Paul Rudd, all of my favorite lines :)
