Just some photospheres from beginning-of-summer adventures! The more rocket mountain one is super fun to view in VR if you're able to.

If this isn't awesome, I don't know what is. I mean, just to clarify, these particles aren't being depicted as having these shapes in three-dimensional space. It is a view similar to that of string theory, where the behavior of fundamental particles can be described by their higher-level dimensional geometry, and so these depictions, while in three dimensions, are really simplifications.

None of it fails to get me excited about what I'm getting into later though :)

A spot I see on my ride back from work...I'm getting a little better at the photosphere thing, but not perfect yet. The fact that you have to hold the camera still and move around it is pretty obnoxious.

...honestly, I'm not entirely sure where I stand on this point yet. Throughout my time in school, I ended up finding math to be something that unified my way of thought, and clarified things. When I started to learn a bit of programming, it was similar; I was learning new ways of thinking, applying them, and seeing the results in real time.

Both had real-world consequences, not only for how they could be used, but also for how they effected my thoughts - and how they continue to do so. The idea of software patenting is nice because it drives people to actively use their own way of thinking to develop things, but it has a side effect of making the world pretty single-minded; when people share code, they certainly learn to think in different, new and exciting ways.

I think the same can be said of mathematics, and has been going on for several millenia - and while our world is certainly currency-based now, is it necessarily a good idea to change our mindsets to fit into it?

Huh...I rember playing around in that solar system simulator and trying just this, was annoyed that it never let me just PAUSE IT to set specific velocities. Pretty sweet though; reliable predictions of 3-body orbits.

...So my comp locked up, then BSOD'd on boot at the DLP last night, thought it was proc overheating due to the artifacts, but after continued investigation I'm pretty sure it's the RAM...:X
