Thank you . It's really cool that you see that. I feel the same way about this image and this is why (you don't have to read this if you are busy ): The thing about these types of fractals is that I start with noise, and after applying the same functions (which move the pixels) over and over again to the noisy pixels, I get this image (a limit set). If I continued to apply the same functions to all the pixels in this image, I would get the same image. It is symmetric under this entire function system (it doesn't change when these transformations are applied to it). I think this symmetry looks ordered and aesthetically pleasing . If I were to apply the inverse of these functions, I would push the image back to noise, which would really be chaotic (I wouldn't be able to tell at all where a pixel would end up).
