sharing this because i noticed an intothecontinuum GIF flash on the screen for a quick second around the 0:23 mark. I think a pataak and a mr. div GIF get displayed right before that point as well. By the way, I think math “exists”( whatever that means).
It’s been a while since I last did a self-portrait.
The Mavericks upgrade removed my copy of Java, so Processing doesn’t work without a hefty download. Therefore I’ll be keeping things simple and just using Cinder for everything from here on out.
"Suppose there were a pool of water — clear, limpid, and unsullied. A man with good eyesight standing there on the bank would see shells, gravel, & pebbles, and also shoals of fish swimming about and resting. Why is that? Because of the unsullied nature of the water. In the same way, that a monk with an unsullied mind would know his own benefit, the benefit of others, the benefit of both; that he would realize a superior human state, a truly noble distinction of knowledge & vision: Such a thing is possible. Why is that? Because of the unsullied nature of his mind."
