    This is my favorite blogpost of all time. It’s someone thoroughly exploring and playing with the idea of the Sierpinski Triangle and having an absolute ball. I don’t understand every part of the post, but to me this is the perfect embodiment of the fun of “doing math” and really exploring a space.

    • They play the Sierpinski Triangle on a piano
    • They build it with cellular automata
    • They plot it on a 3D model of a Cow
    • They explore Chaos with it
    • They explore it in higher dimensions
    • They smear different terms across space during construction
    • They view it as a Markov Chain
    • They view it as an L-System
    • They view it as a graph

    Just SO MUCH Sierpinski Triangle! I saw that u/pushcx posted this a few years ago and no one commented…but I really wanted to post it again because when I think of what types of blogs I want to read this always pops into my head. True exploration.

      This book links it with the Towers of Hanoi game.

      Startlingly glorious and occasionally incredibly silly.

        This post is overwhelming and cannot be digested in a single sitting, but I will be back repeatedly to take another bite.
