Hi Bill,

Very well done !
I enjoy as much looking at the picture as thinking about how you did it. And I
was going to ask you the same as Samuel B. about wave function collapse.
I also wonder what a walk would look like in that maze. Maybe you could make an
animation out of it. Take a random cell on the surface of the sphere, perform a
random walk following the cells rules until you reach another surface's cell,
interpolate the camera position smoothly along the traversed cells...
Anyway, thanks for sharing.

purpose using Pov... :( )
