In the ingenious and quite frankly scary video below, The Backyard Scientist demonstrates how to burn images onto wood using a microwave transformer.
It's some kind of Science and Art for sure. But what I find truly interesting is how the power of nature overrides it all. Nature takes over, as the fire and the wood together serve to reveal the essence of fractals, the repeating patterns of nature.
Here, we see that despite or inspite of man's arrogance, creativity, interference, nature will at the end of the day be present, hidden or explicit in everything we do or do not do.
