Yea I'd have to agree with those that believe the universe being one never ending fractal.
As far as the Mandlebulb, thanks for posting this
I was and am a huge fan of the Mandelbrot Fractal/set, and have mant pictures of the 2d version.
Haveing said this, although I find the 3d Mandelbulb to be very pleasant on the eyes, and just amazing.
I still find the animated zoom in of the 2d set to be more mind blowing than the animated zoom in of the 3d bulb. Perhaps because with the 3d set you
cannot just keep going deeper and deeper like the 2d set, because sooner or later your gonna run into a wall because
But it's beauty is not lost on me, Comparing the 3d stalk to the 2d stalk. There's no question the 3d one is way more amazing.
But I can only imagine how much time and effort these scientists and graphics designers put into makeing the Mandelbulb. So cheers to them.
and cheers to the OP again for posting this thread, and the intial post was done very well, showing the progression, and explination of the Mandelbrot
set, along with pictures for reference, and the video at the end was spectacular. Thats where I say the 2d version shines over the 3d version in a
zooming in endless video format, which I just don't see how it can be done with the Mandelbulb, as said sooner or later you run into something solid
But again GREAT thread!
