Pythagoras was born in 570 B.C. and raised on the island of Samos, Greece. As a child he traveled around the world with his father, Mnesarchus, who was a merchant. His mother, Pythis, was a native of Samos. There is not a lot known about Pythagoras’ appearance or his siblings. It is said that he had two maybe three brothers. Pythagoras enjoyed poetry and could recite Homer. He was well educated, interested in mathematics, philosophy, astronomy, and music, as well as, learned to read and play the lyre. He eventually married Theano, who was a native of Croton and had four children, Damo, Myia, Arignote, and Telauges.
Pythagoras’ cause of death is not specified. It is said that a Crotoniate, named Cylon was eager to join and participate*…show more content…*

Pythagoras has been given the credit for discovering the Pythagorean Theorem, a theorem in geometry that states that in a right-angled triangle, the area of the square on the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle) is equal to the sum of the areas of the squares of the other two sides, for example, a^2 + b^2 = c^2 There were three famous people whom influenced Pythagoras the most. The first one being Pherekydes, who studied philosophy. Pherekydes is the first ancient author to introduce the “everlastingness” of time, aka “chronos.” Thales, who studied mathematics and astrology, was another big role model or influence on Pythagoras. He made some of the very major contributions to the field of geometry. Last but not least there was Anaximander, who studied philosophy and geography. He gives us the first preserved written lines of Greek philosophy. This information can be used in field of mathematics, science history, and greek mythology, as well as philosophy. Each of the “role models” have contributed something in each of these

As an artist, the beauty of geometrical patterns has always fascinated me, and a research conducted to gain inspiration for a new painting made me stumble across the concept of fractals. I took a liking to this topic immediately and read further but could not satiate my curiosity by reading one or two articles and found myself pondering
