Simple rules of geometry meant that 5-fold symmetry was impossible as were crystals without a periodic structure. This turns out to be wrong. Thanks to LastPass for sponsoring a portion of this video. Click here to start using LastPass:
Huge thanks to Prof. Paul Steinhardt for the interview on this topic. Check out his book ‘The Second Kind of Impossible’

  • Roger Penrose was just awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics! Not for this pattern but “for the discovery that black hole formation is a robust prediction of the general theory of relativity”

    • DUDE! I saw this pattern in a movie (can't remember the name of the movie, scene was near the end, two characters standing on a plaza with the Penrose pattern in the tile beneath them), and I searched for it for an embarrassing amount of time with no luck. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! for scratching this mental itch that has been in the back of my mind for months. Ahhhhhhhhhhh.........

  • We have the Penrose tiling pattern from 8:52 in the chemistry/biochemistry building floor at the University of Western Australia. It has a huge open atrium so you can get a great view from the top floor. There's a plaque on one of the walls explaining the significance.

  • Infinite-none-repeating patterns must exist on a molecular level, because change exists. Wouldn't a world with only repetitive symmetric patters be stuck? The golden ratio is so common in nature and in life. It seems to be a constant of change and growth patterns. Pure repetition is an equivalent of death.

  • Could this be relatable to alternate dimensions, we are not quite lined up right ? Then sometimes unexplainable things happen coincidences even when parts line up for small time periods. Got me thinking when the different variations of you and the pattern were lined up. Great video always blows my mind.....maybe too much as you can see.
