The program covers ideas of pattern formation in nature, self organisation, feed back loops, fractal systems, evolution…etc

It reveals the science behind much of beauty and structure in the natural world and its intrinsic part of the laws of physics.

Amazingly, it turns out that the mathematics of chaos can explain how and why the universe creates exquisite order and pattern. The natural world is full of awe-inspiring examples of the way nature transforms simplicity into complexity.
