This is one of my favorite creations. Incredible cell count and very pretty to watch.

For the best view, watch it in full screen.

That does look pretty cool

Wow, your mandala is really beautiful! Both visually and, for lack of a more precise word, mathematically. I like the 2-squared development. Did you put the max cell count at 2050 so that it would stop at 2048?

I tried to create some simple fractal structures once -- like the Sierpinski triangle or a simplified T-square fractal, but I never got very far. After the initial circle, your mandala's development is a bit like a fractal.

Nope, I've set the max count to 2048

Cool video . Looks a bit like this 2d rock paper scissor:

The swimmer chain looks especially like the second video, at 27 seconds from the beginning.

How did you make this? I've been trying to recreate it and can't figure it out

### Re: Video - Swimmer Chain - From 1 cell to 800 on Macrophage

I'll send you a PM with some details.

It's funny to read that reference to fractals from a long time ago.

Especially with the knowledge about Cell Lab fractals we have now

Exactly. It sounds cute and inexperienced -- so to speak.
