    The rushing sound formed itself in my brain into a

    musical sound, the chord of E flat major, which

    continually reechoed in broken forms; these broken

    chords seemed to be melodic passages of increasing

    motion, yet the pure triad of E flat major never

    changed, but seemed by its continuance to impart

    infinite significance to the element in which I was

    sinking.

    Rather than mimicking Nature, Pollock adopted its

    language - fractals - to build his own patterns.

    When asked if he used nature as a source of inspiration for his work, Pollock responded, "I am

    nature!"

    The possibilities inherent in the computer as a

    creative tool will do little to change those

    idioms of art which rely primarily on the

    dialogue between the artist, his ideas and

    the canvas. They will, however, increase the scope

    of art and contribute to its diversity.

    H na heterodoxia cientfica um paralelo com a artstica, um sentido

    esttico para a literatura e para as artes, e um sentido cognitivo para as
