Multi-Fractal Structure Of Finnegans Wake

“The absolute record in terms of multifractality turned out to be Finnegans Wake by James Joyce. The results of our analysis of this text are virtually indistinguishable from ideal, purely mathematical multifractals,” said Professor Stanisław Drożdż, another author of the paper, which has just been published in the computer science journal Information Sciences.
Joyce himself, reported to have said he wrote Finnegans Wake “to keep the critics busy for 300 years”, might have predicted this. In a letter about the novel, Work in Progess as he then knew it, he told Harriet Weaver: “I am really one of the greatest engineers, if not the greatest, in the world besides being a musicmaker, philosophist and heaps of other things. All the engines I know are wrong. Simplicity. I am making an engine with only one wheel. No spokes of course. The wheel is a perfect square. You see what I’m driving at, don’t you? I am awfully solemn about it, mind you, so you must not think it is a silly story about the mouse and the grapes. No, it’s a wheel, I tell the world. And it’s all square.”
The academics write in their paper that: “Studying characteristics of the sentence-length variability in a large corpus of world famous literary texts shows that an appealing and aesthetic optimum … involves self-similar, cascade-like alternations of various lengths of sentences.”
“An overwhelming majority of the studied texts simply obey such fractal attributes but especially spectacular in this respect are hypertext-like, ‘stream-of-consciousness’ novels. In addition, they appear to develop structures characteristic of irreducibly interwoven sets of fractals called multifractals.”

Stephen Hawking: RIVERRUN ENVIRONS.

Joyce’s ‘pancosmos’
may still yet send shock waves throughout the physics
Cluster community consciousness…may yet, may yet.
(and the global internet by default)
if we would give equal credit to
the inner-space of mind-like spaces,
& the outer-space and external phenomena: still mind-like in fact,
I guess… see our faulty wonky perception, the
Shadows often mistaken for the ‘things’ themselves.

LO! to balance the equation of being, of being, of being
Like how James Joyce seems to balance ‘being’ the equation
With holographic prose, prose writing the tightrope, spun prose;
Innovated, deployed and distributed evenly
Trughout Finnegans Week.

 


Time flows like a river and it seems as if each of us is carried relentlessly along by time’s current. But time is like a river in another way. It flows at different speeds in different places and that is the key to traveling into the future, —Stephen Hawking.

riverrun, past Eve and Adam’s, from swerve of shore to bend
of bay, brings us by a commodius vicus of recirculation back to
Howth Castle and Environs. —James Joyce.
