Anyone who was or is a hardcore fan of the Matrix series of movies will understand the title even tho it has nothing whatsoever to do with the plot, sub-plots, or even the AniMatrix stories. If you’re not or never were a Matrix fan, what this fractal suggests is a tiny escape pod that could have been used in the event someone needed to bail out of one of the ships used by the humans. The concept of propulsion wasn’t entirely explained but it seemed to be based upon magnetic attraction/repulsion theory as the “real world” was underground for mankind and it was connected by metal tunnels. The roundish protrusions are very similar to the designs of the crafts that sped thru those tunnels.

This was a VERY quick design and a 24-hour render that survived one complete crash of Incendia on my laptop when the latter was put in sleep mode. I had the render paused but Windows Vista didn’t approve. I’d assumed it wouldn’t and had backed up all of this fractal’s buffers, parameters, materials, etc. prior to the crash. Yeah, I learned the lesson and put it to practice. LOL!

Incendia 1.3 did the formulas. There were no added baseshapes or transformations. There wasn’t even post-render touch-up or resizing. This as “as is” as a fractal from Incendia can possibly be, tho admittedly the render could have gone longer before I uploaded it to Red Bubble. Actually, it’s still running and will run for another 24-hours just to see what else happens. If it’s interesting it may substitute this upload and you won’t be reading any of this so I should probably stop wasting precious time. Then again, it’s time that won’t be wasted for you if I delete it for a later render so you’re getting a “scoop” by wasting your time right now. See how clever that was? Not.


This piece was quietly purchased recently, a first for any of my digital art. To the wonderful person who supported art in general and my art specifically, my heartfelt thanks!


Neo’s Pod also received the “Fractal Of The Week” honours in Fractal Universe group. I am humbled and seriously thankful! :-D

I’m a “scatter-focus” artist. ANYTHING may be here or roundabout my galleries. Expect nothing anywhere and you’ll always be OK. ;-)

    Very cool design work Lenny. :o)

  • Thank you, Bunny. There was just a tiny bit of design, more like offering directions to the program. LOL! But I’m happy to be a part of the algorithms as they compute their colours, shapes,& mass, :-)

    I love the Matrix series but never worried about the propulsion of anything—leave it to you to come up with a question and answer regarding such. LOL

    I’m envious of the ease with which you created this one! ’Tis very cool! :)

  • Thank you but no need to be envious when today’s programs do almost all the hard parts for you. A fractal that’s uniquely yours can be less than 30 minutes away with Incendia or Apophysis.

    Have fun!

  • OMG! I’ve been away with very serious family matters of late and I’m just now seeing this honour. :-D Thank you very, very much! As I mentioned, this fractal was created in VERY little time because I had to squeeze it designing it into less than 30 minutes. I’m rather spooked how nice it looks with nothing but a “naked” image.

    By the way, I never did get around to that additional rendering. My laptop started refusing to go into sleep mode after this fractal crashed it. If I were the superstitious type I’d think this old Toshiba is miffed it was asked to retain so much data and then denied seeing it thru to the end. LMAO!
