The "Zongrila Swirl" - Amazing Recursive Animation
Years ago I found the "Zongrila Swirl" - an amazing recursive animation of the image you see above - and it's made an imprint on me ever since. Long before I read about the ramifications of loops in Douglas Hofstadter's stuff I began to appreciate the concept of representing an infinite process via a finite model (in this case, a simple animation).
Anyway, enough jibber jibber - I've been looking for this animation for ages and I've finally found it again. That link goes directly to the animation, and here's the parent post.
And here's some music to put on in the background. Trust me here. Don't do drugs, kids!
