If you look at the file format, you will see it's a Flash file. Flash typically use a sequence of images, very much like a regular movie:
You have a time line and pictures (called "frames") appear and disapear successively, as time passes. The main difficulty here is to create a set of matching pictures. In fact you are just looking at a movie, except that it uses an endlessly repeting patern, on the center.
A fractal's behaviour (for the little I know about it) duplicate a certain shape ad infinitum to form an image. See sprott.physics.wisc.edu/fractals.htm for examples.
You will note also a very nice moving fractal made with 16 frames.
| Place yourself between 2 mirrors || Nov 3, 2003 |
Put two plane mirrors facing each other. Place yourself between them. This happens in a hairdresser's saloon. Then you can see the infinite rows of mirrors inside mirrors. I cannot remember the name of the phenomenon given by our physics lecturer. Imagine yourself going into the mirrors. You will get the same sensation given by the reference in this thread.
