### Numbers (eye candy)

Although I always was terrible in mathematics at school one of the first things I admired on computers was the mandelbrot phenomenon. Daniel White tries to expand the usual 2-dimensional ways of displaying the graphical outputs of the mandelbrot formula into the third dimension (at least in a graphical way, as far as I understood his explanations – but like I said, I am a complete idiot when it comes to understand mathematical problems). What comes around is incredibly awesome. I mean, believe it or not: those pictures are created by a formula! With some astonishing help by Daniel, of course. Please visit his page and read how he did it. There are also some hints in the text to other people working on stuff like that and a forum full of fractal-fans and stuff.

I mean: Numbers! Isn’t that beautiful?

### Bigger than the universe

I really don’t want to appear as a fractalomaniac or so, but I think this video by Chris Korda is an meaningful addition to my recently post about the 3-D fractals. I find it so astonishing because it shows in another dimension what is so awesome about this fractal phenomena: it lets you experience that the virtual world is larger than (our physical) universe. The number is (to be exactly): 2^316. Phew!

### Methan Eye Candy

In a recent post I wrote about the beautyful Mandelbrot 3D pictures of Daniel White. Tom Beddard took this to a next dimension. He created a short movie of a zoom into one of these 3D fractals. It looks like an alien space ship arrival on a strange and distant methan planet or whatsoever. Nice!
