4/27/11 – Featured in the CUTTING EDGE Group.

Made in UltraFractal 5 from a standard Julia, using the Formula Plotter algorithm. Formula Plotter is a kind of tessalation coloring formula. I used a contrast filter and KPT Materializer in Photoshop CS.

If you try this algorithm, be prepared for a long wait for the preview and an even longer render time. I rendered this at only 2500 pixels wide, as opposed to my usual 4000 and still waited days for the final rendering. I would suggest setting your preview size to the smallest available. With UF, you might also want to render the smallest size to get a preview of the finished product, because formula plotter doesn’t come out looking like it did in UltraFractal.

I’m entering this in the Through the (Quantum) Looking Glass challenge in the Cutting Edge group.

I have always thought that sightings of strange phenomena, like ghosts and Unidentified Flying Objects, may be a result of our universe interacting with another one, or our world touching a point forward or backward in our own time.

“The multiverse (or meta-universe, metaverse) is the hypothetical set of multiple possible universes (including the historical universe we consistently experience) that together comprise everything that exists: the entirety of space, time, matter, and energy as well as the physical laws and constants that describe them. The term was coined in 1895 by the American philosopher and psychologist William James. The various universes within the multiverse are sometimes called parallel universes.”

“The structure of the multiverse, the nature of each universe within it and the relationship between the various constituent universes, depend on the specific multiverse hypothesis considered. Multiverses have been hypothesized in cosmology, physics, astronomy, religion, philosophy, transpersonal psychology and fiction, particularly in science fiction and fantasy. In these contexts, parallel universes are also called “alternative universes”, “quantum universes”, “interpenetrating dimensions”, “parallel dimensions”, “parallel worlds”, “alternative realities”, and “alternative timelines”, among others."
