Fractal art!


Keeping it short and sweet tonight.  It's late.  I'm tired.  I'm worried.  So here I go, about to bollix out a post.

I came across a web site called Fractal World Gallery and ended up spending a good ten minutes just drinking in the images.
Fractals are of course the result of algorithms.  That's probably one reason why they fascinate me as I am not at all mathematical.  How one elegant...even if perhaps lengthy...equation can bring about such art is a statement in fact on the universe.  If math is the language of our environment then it must sound beautiful.  That is if fractals are any indication.

The universe itself may be a fractal of sorts.  And just one universe within a multiverse fractal with more and more universes on down the spiral.  Given how fractals can be computer generated, it makes you wonder about that theory of us living in a virtual environment.  If that's so, I want to see the source code.

Ok, enough heavy banter.  Good night.

    I knew it was too good to be true. Those bastards! :)
