In a musical composition, a leitmotif is a melodic theme that is repeated. It is the dominant theme of the composition. A leitmotif can be generalized to be any recurring theme of not just a musical composition, but also an idea that recurs in a literary piece or even a scientific theory. The purpose of this website is to showcase the ideas in my novel Shards Of Divinities. In doing so you will notice two leitmotifs:
Here is a little poem that captures this sentiment:
When you gaze out of your eyes,
It is God gazing out.
You are within God,
And God is within you.
Like a mirror
Within a mirror,
You are not a being separate from god.
You are a reflection of the divine.
The picture at the top of this page is called the Mandelbrot set. This is a Fractal shape, which is created by repeatedly applying a very basic mathematical operation as a feedback loop. The most important aspect of Fractal shapes is that any small part of the shape contains the whole shape. It's similar to a hologram.
The interesting realization is that extreme Fractal complexity can be created from extreme simplicity. Reality is very economical. In philosophy there's a principle called Occam's Razor which states that the simplest explanation is often the correct explanation. This can be generalized to the principle that Nature prefers the simplest solution to building great complexity.
Indeed, we are within God, and God is within us.
This video shows a virtual trip zooming into the Mandelbrot set. At any level of zoom, it looks the same. The inner contains the outer. The outer contains the inner. Any part of the whole Fractal shape is both the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. It is a loop in Eternity!
