A GIANT AROUND THE CORNER
Hi! My name is Ssaug
I come from Planet Quetelet
This is the symbol of Quetelet
We are anchored to THE NORM
Extremes are very rare
We don’t have bestsellers
Or suffer with stock market crashes
I never saw a millionaire
or a beggar…
Here, no individual or event can make a difference
When I’m bored with this bell-shaped way of life
I go to Planet Mandelbrot
This is the symbol of Mandelbrot
At first, seems just like Quetelet
but you can find a giant around the corner!
At Mandelbrot, most things are like this
but a few are like this
Here, rare events are not so rare
and they can dominate
Now I’m visiting Earth
You, humans, intrigue me
You act as if you live in Quetelet
but your world is much more like Mandelbrot
True, there’s no giants around the corner
