This article was published by Wired on December 9, 2009. This is not a new news but I still find it amazing. The first time I saw this, I was like, “WHOOAAH! These are beautiful!”
This article was about the Mandelbulb. A group of math geeks created a three-dimensional analogue for the mesmerizing Mandelbrot fractal. The 3-D renderings were generated by applying an iterative algorithm to a sphere. The same calculation is applied over and over to the sphere’s points in three dimensions. In spirit, that’s similar to how the original 2-D Mandelbrot set generates its infinite and self-repeating complexity.
Further proof Math is of eldritch creation sent to break men’s minds.
Math is fucking amazing and creates BEAUTIFUL things. I firmly believe it is the language of the universe.
Math saunters over to the other subjects, winks knowingly, and asks, “So, how you like me now?” Physics, Astronomy and Art have been swooning for years but now the others are starting to pick up on what they see in Math.Source: skytopia.com
