Thought this was interesting, after a brutal attack Jason Padgett a college dropout became a mathmatical genius. Everywhere he looks, he sees complex mathematical formulas -- like the Pythagorean theorem, for example. "Every single little curve, every single spiral, every tree is part of that equation," he told ABC News. Padgett turns these formulas into intricate diagrams called fractals. He says that fractals are "shape(s) that when you take the shape a part into pieces, the pieces are the same or similar to the whole."
For instance, he can produce a visual representation of Pi, the infinite mathematical constant which begins with 3.14.
