"I was aware of Fractals in general as we all are. However this presentation takes it to new heights. We learn that it is more about math. We get to see how fractals are not only a part of nature but fractals actually have practical applications and potentials for future disciplines.
If you do not personally apply the information at least you will be fractal literate. Me, I am going to buy some of Benoit Mandelbrot's books. The first one mentioned in the DVD is out of print (rare). Then I was surprised to see that fractals were applied to woven fabrics. I wonder if there is a pattern book or if I will have to make my own drafts?
I only saw the Blu-ray version so I cannot compare. The pictures are crisp but not over enhanced. The rare, very few to nil, extras on the DVD as it is a direct copied of the NOVA program, including the sponsors.
