In high school, I really hated math, and I really liked LSD. And I really like these GIFs.

I am so glad they include the code. I know what Math Club is talking about next week!

Somebody got REALLY bored in their Calc 3 class, didn't they?

Math is way better than LSD for making your mind do this: ︵ /(.□ . \)

Animated GIFs break my browser, but LSD didn't break my brain.

maybe I should try this at home.

Oh, the snowflakes.

Yep. There I am, second row, third from the left.

No, from the right.

Wait....

Someone appears to be confusing their psychedelics.

I think I just discovered a new kind of petite mal seizure.

I love that he/she even knows who Bridget Riley is, much less recreates an animated version of some of her stuff.

I've done some... research, and the psychedelics are anything but confused.

The code for the fourth one has an extra closing bracket ] at the end.

Why not do these in the browser itself? Much cooler if you could just put the code in your html.

Math, that's the stuff Walter White makes, right? He's a math cook?

He's using it as a progressive learning exercise in Mathematica. I believe that's why it doesn't run in the browser. (Also, from his "how-to" explanation, it would require much more processing time than just looping the gif.)

Similar projects like Patakk, (which was previously on the blue) are awesome but don't provide code, so I'm not going to complain that he's not using a browser-ready language. Beauty is possible in many formats.

I appreciated his discussion on art, and gif art in particular.

Sheesh, there are people that can view these and then parse an extra bracket?

My eyeballz are still whirling.
