Dilation as “fractal” or “iteration” or “hologram”

Any space within a dilation can be a new dilation or “fractal” or “iteration” or “child” copy of the original like a holograph.

Dilation in Babylon about 1900 B.C.

I’ve read that this cuneiform tablet is an instructional for scribes. It is thought to be 3,700 years old.

Graphic designers have been around for awhile.


“While the tangram is often said to be ancient, the earliest known printed reference to tangrams appears in a Chinese book dated 1813, which was probably written during the reign of the Jiaqing Emperor.[1]” The o.5 dilation inscribed lower right in the clay tablet above could easily have produced the geometry of a tangram 3,700 years ago in Babylon.

1. ) Euclid knew that every triangle, square, rectangle, circle or regular polygon has a center. ( center of gravity )
2. ) Euclid knew: If A. and B. be any two given points, there is one point C. who’s distance from A. and B. is equal. ( i.e. we can divide any line in half. )
3. ) Where ever two lines cross they meet at a point. ( howdy )

Happily, this is all the geometry an artist or designer needs to master dilation design space.

Any given space.
