Carl Sagan on Extraterrestrials

I don’t really know what a Mandelbrot is or what its significance is, but its still very interesting nonetheless . Besides, the double edge sword of finding out the mystery in something, removes the mystery that made it so interesting in the first place.

The Infinite- Joseph Yeh

Into the colorflow

10 Dec

Three processes interact to make this animation. A spontaneous differentiation due to a multi-scale Turing instability causes the development of dots and lines of various colors. Each color is also a movement, leading to a compressible flow which smears and obliterates the dots and lines. The third process is an overall exponential growth or inflation. Small structures expand, and the Turing instability causes sub-structures to form.
