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

BE PREPARED TO A ASSYMMETRIC WORLD!
