FOTD -- January 30, 2012 (Rating 7.5)
Fractal visionaries and enthusiasts:
Today's image lies in an oversized Mandelbrot set that has been
corrupted in its depths by Z^15 energies. The exact location is
on the northeast shore line of the first significant minibrot
out the main stem of the parent Mandeloid. This minibrot is
well on the way of morphing into a Z^15 one.
I named the image "Nest of Iterations" because for a moment it
reminded me of a bird's nest.
The rating of a 7-1/2 is just far enough above average to make
the calculation time of 2-3/4 minutes worth the wait.
To avoid all waiting, check the official FOTD web site at:
Today turned out mostly sunny for a change here at Fractal
Central; and the fractal cats made the most of things by
spending the entire afternoon in the southwest window, enjoying
the sun, which grows stronger every day. The temperature of 36F
+2C was chilly, but nowhere close to the cold that we often
experience here in Central Pennsylvania at the end of January.
The humans, (at least that's what they say we are), spent the
day pondering the bills, which is a very human thing to do. The
fractal cats, by comparison, never worry about bills. The next
FOTD is due to be posted in 24 hours, and unless something
unexpected happens, it will be posted on schedule. Until then,
take care, and imagine that all the material in the universe
vanished, leaving a vast three-dimensional emptiness. Now try
to imagine that the empty space vanished. Could the fact that
mentally eliminating the empty space is so much more difficult
indicate that empty 3-D space is merely a state of consciousness
-- the blank screen of the mind perhaps?
