    Better, Chiro, far better, now you're commenting something concrete instead of: you're ugly than me, no you, no you...

    Now, time: you are understood me wrong (it is more likely that I express myself wrong, I know, sorry)

    I talk about time as a measure for the iteration process meaning that the iteration is the unit
    I talk about iterations because this is what defines the fractal. It converts a function into a fractal in the same way that "Stupid is as stupid does"

    You are correct that in the limit, the fully iterated object represents the fractal but you should be careful when you say things like time in this context.

    Like all languages if you say something where it has a commonly defined meaning then the people that interpret the common meaning as being what it is commonly referred to and time has a very well established common meaning amongst many people.

    Also I don't think you're ugly.

    Jajajajajaja, Chiro I'm agree with you about using the language properly (even when english is not my mother language) but I have a professional deviation giving the fact that time in python (the programming language) is the number of ticks (perhaps iterations? sure ;p) since epoch

    By the way, may I ask why are you both (or anyother in the thread) interested in fractals? Only for curiosity...
