I had never heard of a Wada Basin until now. Fascinating. (And equally so
because the effect was actually given a name!!) It's interesting that the paper
discusses using FOUR touching spheres, but the image examples use only three.
Seems that an odd number of spheres creates a more interesting look than an even
number (my opinion, anyway.) Maybe that's because familiar kaleidoscope images
are usually of 3,5 or 7 repeated 'segments', and I'm just used to that
arrangement. A learned response, in other words.
