The Lonely Photon
I am the lonely photon
So far out, so far gone,
from whence I came, yet still the same.
Once, I was surrounded by others, but they have spread out
far and wide across the universe,
and yet, they are right next to me.
For to me, time does not exist
and without time, what is space?
I am both nowhere, and everywhere, in perfect isolation, and constant intimate contact.
Some of my brethren have been devoured
to give rise to others, or warm cold desolate matter.
For we, we are energy, we are singularity, we are light,
the eternal messengers in the silent night.
Here I am, as I've always been, alive for an instant that stretches forever.
Oh this quest, that lasts no time at all, and yet has lasted billions of years.
Shall it ever end for me?
Is there something out there, to devour me, to make use of the energy I hold, or shall I remain trapped in infinity forever?
For me, I already know, in this instant, and yet, I do not.
How alien it is, to try to explain to those who experience reality as

What Is Time?
What is time?
Time is the blood-drenched doom of ages gone by.
Time is the truth in the back of your mind
That knows you will die.
That all you are, all you’ll make, all you’ll ever be
is nothing.
Time is truth, time is justice
Time is the trailing wisps of the firework fading into the endless night.
Time is creation and destruction as chaos wars across the skies.
Time is that which we cannot escape, the absolute.
And maybe, it is an illusion.
Yet, it’s all we know, all we can exist in.
Scrapheap and forge, womb and tomb.
Time is nigh.

Velan Prelude: Vignette from Revoked Ascendancy
The scent of pine fluttered through my nose as I hurtled through the forest. Moonlight occasionally peaked through the canopy of shifting boughs, but not enough to illuminate the root-choked floor I was traversing. The smell of wet moss, an odor of slight rot mixed with desperate renewal, rose to meet me as I neared the stream. I could hear it, the water rushing between the rocks, and also the panting snarls and slapping feet of my pursuers. The thrill of the chase, it had been nearly a year since I’d felt quite this alive. I vaulted a fallen tree, my fingers just barely sinking into its decaying bark, and as I slipped between two boulders, I could hear claws ripping into that same bark. They were close.
I knew that I could turn and fight, and that I’d probably dispatch them without even sustaining a wound, but the call of the energy around me pulled me along. The right path lay along this stream, not back amongst the trees. I jumped down a small ledge, landing on a pale ro

Quixotic Pulsar
Okay, the full view on this one is huge, and I normally refrain from that, but I felt like the details around the center warranted the awkward viewing.
I'm happy with how this came out.

For those of you who don't know, a pulsar is a neutron star that's highly magnetized, and is rotating at an insane clip. They therefore (in the minds of some) seem kind of like stellar light-houses, with beams of intense radiation spinning out across the cosmos, giving a regular periodic pulse of radiation to all things that those beams are directed at.
Some consider them to be the closest non-black-hole objects to black-holes, because of density, because of the intensity of the directed radiation outflow from them, but still, they are subjected to different physics in terms of relativity, or at least that's what we think.
They're beautiful objects, projecting their incredible energy throughout the universe, one rotating pulse at a time. For the Voyager missions, the scientists anticipated that their craft would travel to other stars eventually, and as part of a dream to contact other life, they created a map, of where Earth was, based on our relative position to the nearest pulsars. Granted, probably those original maps, as a metal etchings, will never be seen by any living thing again, but the beauty of the idea and the artistic merit in the concept still matters.
Anyway, I really like neutron stars, and pulsars are a pretty cool class of them. Perhaps it's understandable why I'd name this piece what I did.

I tinkered with this for a while, but the strands displayed here reminded me both of Faraday's lines of force depicting EM fields, and also energy flows.
I hope you like this piece.

Fission Is As Fission Does
No really fancy story to go with this one. It had been a while since I'd made a fractal, and wanted to do it again.
I poked around with some old parameters and started improvising from there.
It's very seldom that I get something that is both curling around a lot (with a spherical transform) and that is tightly defined. Things tend to get very diffuse, fuzzy, indistinct. However, just because something initially looks like rubbish doesn't keep me from playing around with the parameters until I start to get something that interests me. This one is just 3 transforms, 2 that are mostly spherical, one that is mostly linear, but scaled in an atypical way for me.
The pattern that resulted, I found to be simple enough to follow, but interwoven and complex enough to engage the eye. Perhaps that's just me, but I like it, and that's the standard I use for what I submit here. I hope you guys like it too though, and that you have a great day.

Coding a New Reality

Journal Entry: Sun Dec 2, 2018, 12:35 AM
I have done something marvelous. Mathematically, it is as beautiful as any of my fractals, and in terms of use, it indirectly has the potential to help everyone.
It's science oriented, and is designed to be a tool for plant-breeding, and I think it's going to help us a lot. Everyone eats food, so... I think it's potentially pretty cool.
But oh, if you could see the ways in which it streams the data, braiding it together through mathematical transformations, you'd understand why I say it's beautiful.
I plan to publish on it.

Am I bragging a bit? Yes, probably, but I'm proud of this, and this is a journal, so ...
Anyway, I've learned a lot through the process of making this thing, and, oh, the name, I call it SOLAR-SAIL, and yes, that's an acronym.
I've gotten back in touch with my linear algebra knowledge, and .... I'm thinking about the software I use for making fractals: Apophysis.
I've written tutorials for how to use various transforms in it to create certain effects, but I've never actually coded a new transform myself.
There have been times in the past though when I was like 'I wish I could just bend the flame into this shape', but couldn't figure out how to do it with the existing transforms.
So, in light of the coding I've done for my work, I'm setting a new long-term goal for myself. I'd like to develop some of my own transforms.
Going into the math in such a fundamental level is different from crafting a fractal using math that other people have shaped, even when you understand what they did.
I'd like to have that experience.

Anyway, I hope you all are well. Peace be with you.

That spark you have to chase

because you want to see that beauty manifest

That is what it is, to live.

As a 23-year old Ph.D. student, there are many things in this world that I have yet to learn. I tend to take tasks very seriously, and the creation of art is important to me.

I began making fractal art back in 2006, shortly after I joined DA. Since that time, I have competed in a number of fractal contests and won several. My techniques vary significantly from some that you see among other fractal artists. I have remained on the outskirts of the community, which has in some ways stunted my growth as an artist, but simultaneously challenged me to develop my own techniques and gain a better understanding of the underlying mathematical principals that govern fractals. However, I have learned that it doesn't matter how much time you spend on techniques if you don't put your soul into the art you're making. It doesn't matter what median it is, without passion all you get is a hollow image, devoid of feeling.

While most of my art consists of fractals, I love to write, and I value my prose and poetry just as highly as my best fractals.

I am always eager to help people out, so if you have any questions about how I make my art, or if you would like me to make something for you, feel free to ask. B-)

Art

Art is the ultimate expression of the mind and soul. Within all of us lies the omnipresent potential to find peace, agony, joy and ire in all walks of life. How we choose to percieve situations is what defines us as individuals, and how we react is the ultimate test of our character.

The community on DeviantArt is truly incredible because of the amazing people who devote vast amounts of time and energy to make it so. Always remember to be respectful towards others and their art, for a stray callous word against something of extreme individual importance can cause far more torment than intended.
