Gary has shown an appreciation of my fractally dotty almost-indigenous-art experiments. They are in fact based on Henon Phase Diagram calculations initially written by Paul Bourke, and can be seen here ~ the code for the flash version I garnered from Keith Peter's who said he borrowed it from Jared Tarbell (following me?) I took the code and blindly fiddled with it to get a few variations that pleased my eye and sense of perverted aesthetics, I'm just glad I didn't break the code - although I'm sure I messed up it's mathematical elegance a bit! Above is the latest version, but with some user control included. The thing that amazes me about these files are the size. This one is only 4kb. Ah, the beauty of mathematics!
