Dimensions of a Broken Universe ____________________________
This series, started in 2014, tries to find connections between physics, math, cosmology and introspection. The title was chosen carefully for it should demonstrate the content of this collection.
It theorizes dimensions, often seen in tesseracts or tesseract nets, and even the mind plays a huge role, more specifically the broken and paradox mind.
In my studies I often found broad connections between how my mind works and how the cosmos behaves. It’s a paradox-seeming behaviour like the contradictory two pillars of modern physics; The war between probabilistic and deterministic views, or more clearly; Quantum Mechanics versus General Relativity!
This fight is excerted in my mind too, it’s like phase transitions between order and chaos, order that arises out of chaos in a most wonderful manner.
This phenomenon can not only be seen in in how my thoughts behave, but in many other examples of nature, in physics, chemistry, biology and many other sciences too.
In the end it underlies the principle of synergetics, the study of interaction which shapes a beautiful braid between holistic connections and reductionistic details, between generality and individuality.
This series will try to connect mathematical thinking with artistic creativity in a way that’s illustrated in utterly surreal pieces.
Paradoxity may appear and disappear in the dimensions of a broken universe.
Welcome to ordered chaos, and let the darkness show the light!
Thanks for the great question! I could talk about doodling all day, because DOODLING IS AMAZING AS HECK COME INTO MY WORLD!1!!

I was 12 years old, I’d just got Nintendogs and was bored in Maths class, so I did what any kid would do: I turned my dogs into my Maths companions. It started out harmless enough - a comment here, a backstory there, but soon, they straight up narrated my class:
In case you don’t speak German, Butch (my pug) challenges Flocke (my sheltie) to revise the decimal numbers and when she makes a mistake, she comments “Well, I guess I’m a bit rusty! But can you do this?”. To which Butch cockily replies “Of course!”
…yeah, needless to say I couldn’t keep up this level of worldbuilding for long.
So what does work?
Well, here are some more recent examples: (I should probably mention that I aced all the tests for which I doodled below. Just, you know, as an incentive to become obsessive like me)
1) Visualizing concepts
Structure of a tone unit
Order of adjectives
Comparing normal distribution and standard normal distribution
Laplace law of probability (if it’ll rain three times this week and a week has seven days, the probability that it’ll rain today is 3/7 and the probability that it won’t rain today is 4/7)
Binomial distribution / Bernoulli process (a Bernoulli process can only result in two values: 0 or 1 (so “Ja/Yes” or “Nein/No” and I wrote Bernoulli as Bär-Nulli which means Bär (”Bear”)- Nulli (”Zero-y”), so it’s literally a bear with a zero on its head that makes you choose. It’s …kind of lost in translation, I guess xD)
If there is no resistance, all objects free fall at the same rate of acceleration, regardless of their weight
Conductors (in conductors, electrons can move around relatively freelly - since they are repelled by other electrons, they spread out as far away from each other as possible)
Insulators (in insulators, electrons are stuck in place and won’t budge unless you make them)
So, as you could probably tell, you don’t need to be a great artist to be a great doodler (but you will inevitably become better^^). I hope I could inspire you a little bit! The most important thing really is to draw something that makes sense to you.
I hope you’ll have a great day and will become a great doodler!

“What’s crazy — and unintuitive — is that as the Jackpot rises higher and higher, because more and more tickets get sold, the less valuable each ticket becomes! A ticket sold for a $1,500 million (or $1.5 billion) Jackpot, in fact, would only be worth about half as much as a ticket sold for a $500 million Jackpot, because you’d most likely have to split the Jackpot, even if you won, with between three and seven other people. And that’s probably what’s going to happen tonight.”
