FOTD -- March 27, 2012 (Rating 7)
Fractal visionaries and enthusiasts:
Today's image exists in an oversized parent Mandelbrot set with
quartic corruption in its depths. The image lies in a patch of
left-over debris inside the main bay of the first large minibrot
beyond the very large minibrot on the main spike of the
near-perfect parent M-set.
The central 8-lobed object with the large triangular minibrot in
its center is filled with smaller similar minibrots. It is also
filled with peaks and ridges of anti-bifurcation, though none of
these appear prominently in the image.
I whimsically named the image "A Quartic Liter" because there is
more to a liter than a quart -- about 1-3/4 ounces in fact. The
rating of a 7 means that I consider the image's worth to be very
close to average. Luckily, the calculation time of just under 2
minutes is also very close to average.
The finished image may be viewed on the official FOTD web site
The day began with clear skies but a frosty temperature of 25F
-4C here at Fractal Central. Once the sun got to work however,
things warmed to a much more pleasant though still chilly
temperature of 48F +9C. The fractal cats found some comfort in
the afternoon sun, which because of its increasing angle is
falling on an ever shrinking inside area.
The humans, FL and I, had an average day, with nothing happening
that was worth mentioning. The next FOTD will be posted in 24
hours. Until then, take care, and if a person does not want a
thing to be true, he simply denies it exists, and if enough
people believe him, the thing does not exist. It's magic!
