Really, I mean it.
In college I had a friend with whom I was able to discuss such arbitrary things. He was the one that introduced me to them, and I became intellectually engaged by the thought or idea of them. No benefits other than I was therefore able to be geeky and notice the fractal imagery in The Matrix...
I have not thought about them in a while. Until I happened upon these. Now please, go look at them.
They are so beautiful the commentary (which I only glanced through quickly) invoked the things such as faith, evolution, God.
