Fractal Offering to the Hindu Goddess Namagiri Thayar.

This sacred fractal geometry is dedicated to the Hindu goddess Namagiri Thayar. An incarnation of the goddess Lakshmi.
In 1913 a petty clerk from madras known as Srinivasa Ramanujan (born 1887) sent some mathematical papers to professor Hardy at trinity College Cambridge.
At first he did not think they were of any significance, only until he recognised some of the Indian’s formulae's, but others seemed impossible to believe.
Some of the formulas were already known, but after reading Ramanujan’s theorems on continued fractions on the last page of his manuscript, Hardy commented that he had never seen anything like them before.
He surmised that Ramanujan’s theorems must be true, because, if they were not true, no one would have the imagination to invent them
What ensued was the discovery of one of the greatest mathematicians, and some of the highest impact pure mathematics of the last century.
When Ramanujan was asked how he came up with these theorems he said they were given to him by the goddess Namagiri in a dream that he had.
It was in 2002 that mathematicians further proved that his mock modular forms proofs and theorems were valid, they are now in use in astrophysics, artificial intelligence and space travel.
So who and what was Namagiri Thayar?
A goddess? An extraterrestrial guiding humanity into the next age of technological advancement?
Was Ramanujan given this knowledge by an advanced intelligence just like Nikola Tesla had claimed he was?
Ramanujan continued with his work on theorems up until his death in 1920 at the age of 33.
SWIPE ↔️ 🔊 The complex geometry of Islamic design.
In Islamic culture, geometric design is everywhere: you can find it in mosques, madrasas, palaces, and private homes. And despite the remarkable complexity of these designs, they can be created with just a compass to draw circles and a ruler to make lines within them. Eric Broug covers the basics of geometric Islamic design.

Something weird to stare at: The Sequel! A much more complex fractal doing the same twisty thing. Also, I've added it to the existing product on my store, if you've bought that version then you get this new version for free!

You would not believe how long I've been trying to render this one without crashing or running out of memory. That's just the plain Cinema 4D render! Then I tried putting it through the most ambitious After Effects stack no sane person would even think of trying! After 16 hours of encoding it failed hard, so I had to remove the time displacement effects. It does still feature something really crazy though, each background layer is running at its own speed!
Between my full time job and doing this animation thing on the side, I'm starting to feel burnt out. I've been pushing myself too hard to create and release large volumes of content, not to mention trying to outdo every previous post with crazier effects, in less and less time than I've ever had before.... just to find that this time the algorithm decides to barely show 10% of my followers my posts for whatever reason. It's not worth it when it's affecting my sleep and my health.
I'm going to slow down focus on quality over quantity from now on. Less time on making a zillion effects on social media posts and more on designing better visuals that stand on their own. The next big batch of renders are amazingly detailed 4K layer packs and they'll take forever to render, but they'll blow my current visuals out of the water and I won't have to run them for another zillion hours through after effects :)
"Più cresce il nostro sapere, più evidente ci appare la nostra ignoranza. [...] la vasta distesa dell’ignoto, delle domande senza risposta e dell’incompiuto superano ancora di gran lunga la nostra comprensione collettiva.
Nessun uomo riesce a comprendere realmente quanto lontano siamo giunti e quanto velocemente. Per far questo, immaginiamo di condensare i 50.000 anni della storia umana conosciuta in un periodo breve quanto mezzo secolo. Se consideriamo la cosa in questi termini, possiamo dire di conoscere molto poco dei primi 40 anni, se non che verso la fine gli uomini più avanzati avevano appreso a utilizzare le pelli degli animali per coprirsi. Dieci anni fa, se continuiamo a seguire la nostra ipotesi, l’uomo è uscito dalle caverne per costruirsi i primi ripari. Solo cinque anni fa ha imparato a scrivere e a utilizzare i carri su ruote. La cristianità ha avuto inizio meno di due anni fa. La stampa è nata quest’anno e, meno di due mesi fa, se confrontiamo tutta la storia umana con un periodo di soli 50 anni, il motore a vapore ha messo a nostra disposizione una nuova fonte di energia.
Newton ha esplorato le leggi della gravità. Il mese scorso sono stati inventati la luce elettrica, i telefoni, le automobili e gli aerei. Solo la settimana scorsa siamo riusciti a scoprire la penicillina e a inventare la televisione e l’energia nucleare e ora, se i nuovi veicoli spaziali americani riusciranno a raggiungere Venere, prima della mezzanotte saremo letteralmente riusciti a raggiungere le stelle.
Tutto ciò avviene con un ritmo sbalorditivo e, inevitabilmente, man mano che l’uomo riesce a superare i mali del passato, questa forte accelerazione ne vede sorgere di nuovi: nuova ignoranza, nuovi problemi e nuovi pericoli. [...]
Non è sorprendente, perciò, che alcuni di noi preferiscano restare al punto in cui siamo ancora per un po’, per riposarsi e attendere. [...] Se questa breve storia del nostro progresso ci insegna qualcosa, è che l’uomo, nella sua ricerca della conoscenza e del progresso, dà prova di grande determinazione e che non è possibile dissuaderlo dalla sua impresa."
Presidente John F. Kennedy, Houston, Texas, 12 settembre 1962
'Patterned Chaos' VIII out of IX / Image: Saurabh Sawant (@saurabhsawant ) // If you go out to look for them, #fractals will materialise everywhere. Here is an aerial view of an alpine #forest . These #conifers in #Arunachal Pradesh grow to around 30 m., and as can be seen they display a striking symmetry when seen from afar. Under their canopy, of course, virtually every leaf, bark, seed and stone possesses its own unique symmetry, adding allure and mystique to #forests that inspire poets to poetry, artists to art and scientists to enquiry.
