  1. Soooo beautiful. What does that mean, “employ imaginary powers”?

    • Like most of the fractals I present on this blog it calculated using complex numbers. The power function can be employed to raise a number to an integer power for example 2 for squaring a number, 3 for cubing etc., the power doesn’t have to be an integer for example 0.5 gives the square root. The power can also be a “complex” number which is made of two parts the real part and the imaginary part, in this case the real part of the power is zero and the imaginary is non-zero (I can’t remember exactly what).
