Thanks for the reference and the source code! I've been playing with
similar constructions (in the fractal contest from last year I placed
tangent spheres at the vertices of a cube:
and have since been working with other constructions.) But yours came out
way cooler, and with new variations I hadn't thought of. I'll have to get
the book. I have seen the name "Indra's Pearls" on some fractals scattered
throughout the internet, but wasn't aware of their construction.
