Wow - that's ambitious, in and of itself!

But of course you did!  ;)
Next we know, you'll be into Octonions and hanging out with Cohl Furey...

Wow - as if the earlier puzzle videos weren't impressive enough - now you have
everything dancing and oscillating with the musical score...

.... and of course you had to expand on the original puzzle so that it could be
fractally extended out to infinity.

What's next?  4D puzzles?

Great job as always - glad to see a new puzzle, and one that is impressive on so
many levels as well  :)
