Colors of Infinity- Arthur C. Clarke’s documentary on fractals

Today I learned about the Buddhabrot, a novel view of the Mandelbrot set that looks like a meditating Buddha. In searching for more information about it, I discovered this documentary on fractals by famous science and science fiction writer Arthur. C. Clarke. View scenes of beautifully illustrated mandelbrots with 60s musical accompaniment, and hear notable speakers, including Stephen Hawking, comment on the various contributions fractals have made to our understanding of natural forms. It’s about an hour long, a great way to unwind in the evening. Enjoy!
