Fractal Philosophy: Grounding the Nature of the Mind with Fractals

Asante James Knowles


Grounding is a field of philosophy that attempts to answer what are the metaphysical aspects of nature. The reasoning and understanding that is used in philosophy can be mapped out with fractals, due to the symmetry, infinite, and circularity. These aspects of fractals are found through biologly, psychology, physics, and even computer science. Through this understanding; fractals implemented into philosophy and the sciences and create a unified method of bringing the metaphysical concepts of the mind to the empirical data observed from nature.
