I was wondering what paths would be taken by pairs of points subjected to various attractive and repulsive forces. This is the result of the experiment.
Two pairs of points are allowed to roam freely in a virtual space. The pairs of point exhibit attractive properties when their distances are greater than a certain threshold, and repulsive properties otherwise. The forces of attraction/repulsion follow the inverse square magnitudes of natual laws such as gravitation. The virtual environment also holds a few hidden static points that also exert attractive/repulsive forces on the dynamic points. This keeps them in a general vincinity in the virtual space. A filled line is drawn between the pairs of dynamic points, and their paths are recorded over many iterations.
The lines between the pairs of points take turns to be drawn to a screen canvas. This results in an interlacing pattern when they overlay, hence its name.
