It gets more interesting as a prescriptive tool; before we study something, we establish it as a situation, which must include our planning to study it.

Every atom is a situation.

There are many such situations involved in this screen producing the situation of all our screens producing a model of this situation on it. Are there similarities between these situations? Yes - the atom has a core, and the situation of us looking at the atomic model has that model, and by implication the idea of the atom, as its core.

MATHEMATICS

noun

1.

a curve or geometric figure, each part of which has the same statistical character as the whole. Fractals are useful in modeling structures (such as eroded coastlines or snowflakes) in which similar patterns recur at progressively smaller scales, and in describing partly random or chaotic phenomena such as crystal growth, fluid turbulence, and galaxy formation.
