The simplest algorithm and you can get great looking graphics. More than that – you get graphics that are full of abstract, archetypical, almost mystical knowledge.
Let me explain myself… The algorithm is very simple. We loop to find the coordinates for a circle’s perimeter whilst varying the circle’s radius. As this change of the radius fluctuates it give rise to a million of shapes, all following a symmetry and morphing between each other.
To get the full effect, run the spiral program whilst meditating, relax the body, empty the mind, and let the spirals teach us 🙂
