Collatz Conjecture

Collatz conjecture is an unsolved conjecture in mathematics. It is named after Lothar Collatz, who first proposed it in 1937. The conjecture is also known as the 3n + 1 conjecture. In the Collatz conjecture, you take any natural number n. If n is even, halve it (n / 2), otherwise multiply it by 3 and add 1 to obtain 3n + 1. The conjecture is that for all numbers this process converges to 1.

For example, take the number 3. 3n + 1 would be 3×3+1=10. Because 10 is even, halve it. 10/2=5. 5×3+1=16. 16/2=8. 8/2=4. 4/2=2. 2/2=1.

The Collatz conjecture is: This process will eventually reach the number 1, regardless of which positive integer is chosen initially. And just as with the Collatz conjecture, no matter what problem we have in life, it always solves out to the One!

Eph 4:4-6 says:

“There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.”

Collossians 3:11 states, “Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.”

In every problem, every situation, every dilemma, and every conjecture, the final answer is always the same: Jesus Christ.

When iterating the Collatz Conjecture on complex real numbers, a fractal map of the results creates a stunning pictorial… Do you see it?
