Symmetry

Here’s something interesting that I just recently discovered about the Mandelbrot Set. When you take a region surrounding one of the “mini black holes” within the Mandelbrot set, and then flip both axes (x and y), you end up right where you started. It looks exactly the same. At least the outside part looks exactly the same. When you look at the INSIDE or black hole part though, you see that it is the polarized opposite of the original image.

There’s a concept in physics called parity where; if you flip or reflect all the axis (x,y and z) of an object, and the result looks exactly the same as the original, then they say that that object has “even parity” and if you flip all the axis, and the object is the polarized opposite of the original, then the object has “odd parity”.

If this is true, then the OUTSIDE of these “mini-mandels” have even parity and the INSIDE has odd parity. We find a similar phenomenon when we look at galaxies and other objects in our universe. Most galaxies (a lot of them) seem to have even parity.

When you flip both axis (in these images) you end up with almost exactly the same picture, just like in the Mandelbrot images. Since we know that there is a black hole at the center of all galaxies, then my theory can make a prediction, that when we finally get around to looking at an actual black hole, we are going to find that it has odd parity, just like in my model.
