This is an amazing set of videos. It is, in the simplest terms, a demonstration of Infinity itself. Arthur C. Clarke, author of 2001: A Space Odyssey, takes us on a tour of the Mandelbrot Set (M-Set). It is represented as a graph of a simple mathematical equation, yet it contains the most amazing images.
As you load the YouTube videos, note that you can enlarge the image to the full size of your screen. I highly recommend that you view these videos this way. Also, you’ll want to grab your favorite snacks and drinks. And do you like Pink Floyd? They are the soundtrack to one of the most amazing visual journies you will ever take. It…is…Infinity. And it…is…beautiful.
But you are also free to talk about anything else you want. This is a Weekend Open Thread at TheZoo. Thanks for stopping by.
