This is great, Bill. I love these sorts of things.

Are you familiar with the so-called "wave function collapse" algorithm? It can
produce similar results to this, but must be run for many cycles. Probably too
expensive to do in POV-Ray, but you never know. I haven't looked into WFC too
closely make an implementation yet, but it looks very promising.

Are the pathways here completely traversable, or are there islands?
