This is even cooler than the Mandelbrot generator. Via clickolinko I found this excellent function which you shouldn't click just yet because I've got a more entertaining presentation of it. You're supposed to graph the function
It uses the dmath library so I can call the Lots more interesting empirical math in this paper.
1/2 < |_mod(|_y/17_| 2-17|_x_|-mod(|_y_|,17),2)_|
over a certain range. Here's a Python program that does it:
floor function on an arbitrary-precision decimal. Anyway, you can run that program yourself or you can see my premade ASCII graph of the function If you graph the function over other ranges you can see other patterns, but none so striking.
