    If you want your mind truly blown, listen to "Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien", the "Wake-Up" song from Inception in another tab/screen.

    Isn`t this a Mandelbox Set and not a Mandelbrot Set? It even says so on the video itself. Not to be nit-picky, I was just expecting something different, but this is pretty freaking cool too.

    Mandelbox is just a 3D Mandelbrot. Essentially, a Mandelbrot set layered over and over, becoming a box.

    For those wishing that this was in video games. Look up "Unlimited Detail" on YouTube. Video games is exactly what this rendering software was designed for.

    Can anyone vouch for the mathematical accuracy of this? I don`t wish video games had cooler cities, I wish the real world had cooler cities.
