JDM has received repeated requests for Junior's quips, sayings, analects, even hilarious one-liners, to be compiled into a book or webpage. It is often commented how these concise remarks replay in the mind for years to come, giving simple humor or piercing perspective or new growth. In response, Junior will be publishing a regular quote here. (All content here and sitewide is the intellectual and copyright property of JDM. All rights reserved.)

What do snowflakes, broccoli, and trees have in common with our life? They are fractal; they have identical repeating patterns at every level. In our life, the large-scale patterns we enjoy or mourn are the eventualities of identical antecedent patterns at lesser levels. To say it another way, what you are doing or not doing at daily-level smaller scales is creating a butterfly effect at bigger scales--even if you do not perceive it. To say it another way, your life is made up of several smaller lives. Address and change the smaller lives and you change the larger life. The entire fractal mechanism must be reengineered from the bottom up. A minor nip-tuck here and there will not change a vast desert into a lush promise land. They are built on entirely different patterns.

Many, maybe most, people do not get this. Varying degrees of ignorance, darkness, or insanity make people want to change large-scale patterns, while barricading themselves in diseased or mediocre or outdated small-scale patterns. Know and accept the fractal nature of all reality. Think you're that adorable, unique wittle snowflake? Well, you are, but not the way you think. You are fractal, and that fractal nature is the God-given key to your existence.




For as he thinks within himself, so he is...

Proverbs 23:7 (NASB)

This is what the LORD Almighty says: “Give careful thought to your ways. Go up into the mountains and bring down timber and build my house, so that I may take pleasure in it and be honored,” says the LORD. “You expected much, but see, it turned out to be little. What you brought home, I blew away. Why?” declares the LORD Almighty. “Because of my house, which remains a ruin, while each of you is busy with your own house. Therefore, because of you the heavens have withheld their dew and the earth its crops. I called for a drought on the fields and the mountains, on the grain, the new wine, the olive oil and everything else the ground produces, on people and livestock, and on all the labor of your hands.”

Haggai 1:7-11 (NIV)

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.

Galatians 6:7 (NIV)
