(Zero, One)
The Mandelbrot set is possibly the most complex mathematical object that has ever been explored. Yet, despite its incredible complexity it has elements of predictable order. The area around the point (0, 1) - shown above - is one of those. The exact same sequence of filigreed arms repeats endlessly as you zoom in, turning one full rotation precisely every twenty zooms (approximately one million times change in magnification). This particular zoom movie only goes for eighty zooms, but the pattern repeats forever.

To appreciate some of the characteristics of this zoom movie you should try increasing the zoom playback speed using the up arrow key. See the plug-in help for more information.
