The Infinite Pattern That Never Repeats

Simples 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”

I hate to break it to you, but infinite doesn't mean all, so there's no guarantee that any section on "pattern a" would appear on "pattern b". The patterns never run out of space to display the section, but they also never run out of alternate section to display in it's place.

@alnot01 Actually, Penrose was there first (meaning, he was the one who proved black holes must form under certain "benign" conditions that had been previously considered "unrealistic"). Hawking a bit later contributed to Penrose's singularity theorems.

I feel like they picked one thing but gave him a lifetime achievement Nobel. It was black holes because he was tacked on with the other winners. Either way well deserved.

I have a particular problem with 'unverifiable infinity' I would want to say that I don't believe the pattern is truly infinite.. So much as I think that it is able to build roated sub patterns into layers, where as it'd as likely take such an absurd scope to even find the repeat, that I think the comparison to shapes like squares, triangles, & even other multi-part shapes a bit on the unfair sense, as the building of the pattern uses logistical rules beyond 'fitting sides together'. Though, what i think is as likely as much else... it being rather unfair & .. sorta dismissive to say 'infinite number of patterns' while admitting to sub repeating parts. It's also 'slightly misleading' to suggest it's only 2 shapes that makes that pattern, when it ends up being dozens on dozens, with only 2 kinds. -- as if it was 1 pattern diced up into several, really.. Not to say 2 very simple elements of something can't make up something extensively more complicated then it's parts alone.. though, perhaps it's the secret right? that such things once weaved large enough becomes the fabric of which everything is made from.... and thus a thing onto it self where it becomes misleading to claim 2 elements once those patterns start creating patterns that create patterns & continue to do so the more that is pulled back out to a point of unknown stability. what of Protons & electrons? if woven so close & having it's own logic & laws, making up reality as we know it.. that the existence of everything else is just them.. might be missleading to say protons & electrons, when say.. you're holding a drink, or food. I do believe it is scale for sure and such things can lead to understanding about sheer fundamentals, but if the 'examples' are little more then utterly mind boggling & effectively impossible to examine in full with even projected future hardware, then... what of the real deal & why do we consider it immutable if at the core of thingss it is only a 0 or a 1... a fat shape or a shape, & by knowing what's what.. you could change the localized rules for x things, and manipulate the patterns. -- as any sufficiently complicated pattern would have a drift ability & in that excessive resistance to destruction via pattern changing. this being the whole of the thing... while localized patterns would have to change to fit the alterations.. while not changing the overall patterns.

Thank you for using the phrase "raises the question" at 5:32 (which was the correct phrase to use in this instance), instead of using the phrase "begs the question" (which would've been the wrong phrase to use in this instance, since it means something entirely different)! I cringe every time someone misuses the phrase "begs the question!"

No you don't. It's not about two little areas being the same, but that at some point the entire sequence repeats. Which it doesn't. Just like the number Pi has an infinite number of digits after the comma, and sequences like "1234" will occur multiple times, but it will never repeat.
A classic Japanese circle problem.
