I'm thinking and trying yours. In fact, that is interesting, too. But the seam
is still there. I have known that if you angular direct, (your Ang(x,y) ), you
unavoidable get the seam, or you mirror the pattern, but if so, you will produce
a symmetric pattern, not a randomize pattern.

I have found (just this thread I post) some combination to generate
angular-association or radial-association pattern to naturally avoid the seam,
they just don't have that seam. If you notice? I divide the (x, y) by its vector
length (your Rad(x,y,z) here) to f_bumps input, or just input a function which
used your Rad(x,y,0) to z. It is simple, I just never noticed the method before.
