I love mandelbrot youtube, where the most important thing is how many iterations is in your deep, hard zoom.
Here's "Mandelbrot zoom to 10E+1116 with deep zoom into minibrot - 75,000,000 iterations":
Or how about some "Mandelbrot deep zoom to 10E+2431 at 60 fps - Needle Julia evolution - 30,000,000 iterations." Very satisfying:
Granted, that's not quite as many iterations as some. Here Eddy Fry offers a staggering 538 trillion iterations, but to be honest I'm not all that impressed with the hardness of his zoom:
Here's a "lucky zoom" with 7.777*10^777 | 777,777 iterations:
It is amazing what folks find hidden in the set. The "Pinwheel of Infinity" is a striking example of the uncannyiness of fractals:
....and, from Fractal Universe, the "hardest Mandelbrot Zoom Ever":
You can make your own with Mandelbrot Explorer.
Set this Mandelbrot zoom video to full screen and prepare to zone out on deep fractals for the next five+ minutes. It has 750 million iterations and its creator Fractal universe claims that’s a new record. They also report that it took “more than 10 gigabytes of ram to render the reference.” (reddit)
Depths of Antiquity is Julius Horsthuis’ hypnotic slow-motion dive into fractals generated from images of churches, castles and other imposing edifices of yesteryear. It’s perfectly complemented by Beethoven.
It’s been 15 years since the publication of Steven Wolfram’s A New Kind of Science, a mindblowing, back-breaking 1,200-page book that (sort of) says the whole universe is made up of recursive fractals, also noteworthy for the frequent repetition of the phrase “A new kind of science” in its early chapters.
