Mandelbrot fractal zoom to 6.066 e228 (2^760)

Yes. This is awesome. On mute (not a big house guy), fullscreened on 3-4 monitors right now.

“Two days to set up, and then six months to render, resulted in around forty 1.9GB uncompressed anti-aliased x 4 .AVI files. I added watermarking, fx and time remapping, before multi-pass encoding the 80GB video in h264 (32,768 kbit/sec) and the audio in AAC.”

The final magnification of the mandelbrot fractal is 6.066e+228 (2760)

want some perspective?

1E6 Vancouver Island
1E9 Jupiter’s radius
1E12 Earth’s orbit
1E18 distance to Alpha Centauri
1E21 Milky Way galaxy
1E30 large doesn’t cover it!
1E42 size of electron to the universe

1E228 so big it hurts…but we did it!

For the record, 1 to 6e228 is like expanding a proton to 70000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 0000000000000000000000000000000000000 times the size of the visible universe. (i.e. mindrape)
(Proton has 1 femtometer diameter, universe has 93 billion light year diameter)

I have no idea what the title of the song is, but the video is by subblue and made using only the 3D version of the Mandelbrot fractal, the Mandelbulb
