    As far as I understand, and I do have more than a couple of gaps in my understanding of the process of imaging the Mandelbrot Set (although I know Joe's diaper checking meme is an accurate depiction of part of the process ), they always use that quadratic equation for the Mandelbrot Set images and the value of C determines the set (point of exploration). The creator of the video has a blog, go HERE (third blog entry down) to see the coordinates and the magnification (how deep it went). You can also download a high quality version of the video if you wish, see the bottom of the blog post. I also welcome any corrections of my comprehension of the mathematics.

    If you're interested in the math, THIS artcle shows you how to do it by hand and breaks it down for the reader to learn.

    The deeper you go into the Set, the more complex it becomes, this is what makes this one so breathtaking. This was published in 2010 and at that time it was a record (the deepest so far), as far as the creator was aware at that time.

    I've already posted the best one but here's another from that blog, "In memory of Benoit Mandelbrot (Mandelbrot Set zoom, planetarium proposal)". Imagine watching that at a planetarium, wow!

    Ah - that's:

At some point you have to just let it all go and be happy, you have to spread love instead of being afraid of it. You have to love yourself and everyone around you before its too late. Dont waste away being unhappy over trivial things dear. Dont do it. Dont do it to yourself and dont let other people do it to you."

    So warm and wise. This world will suck the life out of you if you're not careful and this is how you end up if you let it. It's not enough to love others, without loving yourself. And in this cold place I wonder, do the warm people know they're the light in the dark? Do they know they remind me of God's love? Do they know how Godly they are? Not all the enlightened, clever, funny or charming people in the world could take the place of one warm person.

    The eternal limitation of science:

    Although science is of fascinating and practical uses, there is one door unavailable to it due to its nature.

    Science infers that given infinite time, everything unknown/ unknowable will become known. Science will spend eternity proving it can.

    The magician of old hasn't changed, just the name.

    Real magic is the truth of nature. Nature is just that magical. Nature keeps no secrets but often remains so mysterious, like an eternal surprise for us to explore.

    The Nature That I Know:

    Nature is so whole that it is unaware of it's own existence.
    There is nothing to compare (extrapolate......)

    It cannot behold its own beauty. A hypothetical attempt to do so would only brings something else.
    Being a part of nature affords the same result. You'd think that implies a split personality but that would be
    an example of the something else talking. You know what can happen when you trust something/ someone else don't you? (that last sentence just for fun )

    On a similar vein of thought:

    That's brilliant, I hadn't quite grasped it in that way before. This can be seen refelected in the transformation that happens from infant to adult. It's the unawareness that allows various qualities to slip away unoticed.
