Yes, ... fractals. Math is indeed the universal language. It seems that it relates to everything in life and is almost like a web, in that it brings everything together.

The principles behind dynamical systems and fractal patterns also goes along with the reality that nothing is truly random. I read a fascinating book entitled Nature's Numbers - The Unreal Reality of Mathematics, by Ian Stewart. It's my favorite book to date, actually. I think I've read it

*several* times.

In it, is discussed the phenomenon of Fibonacci (which is related to fractals) numbers and the golden ratio... which relate to recurring patterns, functioning and efficient proportions, and even things that appeal aesthetically to the human eye. Everything from the angle of the curve of a growing snail shell to the particular patterns blown across the sand dunes of a desert is directly related to mathematical equations. Everything in nature is organized to a T and things that appear random, are, in fact, as precise as the complex inner workings of a watch.

You can also translate the mathematical equations of the architecture of a building into musical score and actually 'play' the architecture of the walls around you.

And think of art itself. Most all art, whether concrete or abstract, is all geometry. Geometry is math. You can also use sound waves to create art. For instance, sound waves on a resonating table produce Chladni patterns in salt or sand. The theory behind this is much the same, basically related to mathematical equations... physics related equations, to be exact.

Truly fascinating subject, Janet!
