Quick'n'Dirty: Reflections and Transparency
Fractal Art Week
Note: these are not the holy grail settings for reflections and transparency. They are what this is called: a quick and dirty approach for those who (like me for a long long time) need a place to start and experiment from. All in here is based on what I found out myself or what I was pointed to by kind fellow DA-members. If you find fault with it, have additional tips or whatever, please drop me a note :)  Also, please remember, I am not a native speaker. Either ignore spelling- and/or grammar-mistakes or (even better!) point me to them if you like! :)
Errmm... Maybe it's not such a Quick tutorial after all... :}

When you find that moment of true non-duality, between this illusion and the reality. When you see the consciousness reflected in every fragment of light, the water and every living being. When you see the air dancing, feeling the life of the moment, the only time that exists. And in this moment, you will see me, staring back at you, eternally reflecting ;)

The druids were the ancient order of harmony. Through the eons civilization would rise and decay. Shamanism will fade away into the welcoming embrace of mindfulness. A new dawn of enlightenment, the breakdown of hierarchy and free sharing of knowledge. Thus the Mahasamatman prophesed millenia ago, they say. A new order shall rise in the fractality of information. Technology synergistic with the evolution of consciousness, the heralds of truth will arrive and depart hidden. Silently guiding the flow of maya, until time dissipates into the utopia of Techno-Buddhism. The social enlightenment driven by emergent incarnate beings. 

"Cosmic vibrations so subtle, 
Like the flow of water gentle. 
The breeze of the wind drifting, 
The gush of fire blazing. 
I disappear into the astral body, 
The eternal soul materializes. 
Reflecting, taking over the mindspace, 
Thoughts drifting akin to the forest noise. 
Observance, flowing through the eons, 
Like water, shape the reality gently." 

"Vibration de l'cosmos est très indulgent 
La motion du l'eau lente. 
Trop de vent, rapidement change la perception 
Un reflexion du conscience. 
Un moment, la motion disapparue 
Le sens de la vie, c'est la vie. " 

(10 videos and VJ loop pack will be announced separately. )

My new audiovisual composition. Visuals made with mandelbulb3d. Big shout out to the Mandelbulb Maniacs facebook group and the many people who shared their resources, tips and parameters (some of which I tweaked to obtain the fractals used in this animation). Fractals tweaked from params shared by Len1, AHarre, OwlieMandel, Pulsar69fr (using deviantart IDs, easier). I don't remember for the 2 bulbs (I was testing the mutagen feature then, though I definitely know how to make bulbs from scratch as well by now). I will update later with links to the parameter references (slow internet ^^)
