Serpinski Seed Main Quote:
"I find this image very evocative in many ways. Seed within egg. Recursion. Mystery as to outcome. The void giving birth . . . The fractal interpenetration of dark and light . . . Its creation is a real meeting of science (math) and art, which is one of my favorite things."
-- Tom Bates

Relationship to the Core Wave:
"What is dark? What is light?" -- m.h.
"Is dark outside of light? Is light outside of dark? -- From Follow Up by Robert C. Cohen

Game I Core Wave: "The primary distinction between inside and outside."

    Highlight Quotes

    "It's also pretty trippy turned "upside down" -- strange alien head in a heart shape."

        -- Tom Bates

  • Highlight

    Looking at the image "right side up," I think of the Shofar--the ram's horn--used by Jews in ritual and remembrance of the power of God. The external shapes make me think of the Shofar, and the internal shape--a musical note.

    The difference clouds create a moody background that holds--almost entraps--energy. It is a dark and intense energy--viewed from behind a geometric veil. Psyche. The cloaked parts of spirit, mind, and emotion that are reachable but only through a predetermined, well-plotted course.

    -- Molly E. Holzschlag
