I just started playing with a hypercomplex fractal....    below is the fractal
script...   but it is a bad image.. :{

#declare W = 5
#declare P = 3.141592
#declare D = 21
#declare J = 47
#declare K = 640

julia_fractal {
<-0.083,0.0,-0.83,-0.025>
hypercomplex
pwr(cos((W*P)/(D*K)),K/P*J)
max_iteration 15
precision 90
texture {
T_Ruby_Glass
}
}
most of the fractal is out of view and i haven't had time to run a picture with
a better view point.... :{   but as you can see I have a complex one for the
Hypercomplex fractals :}   my type of personality make something simple and make
it as complex as posible!  as soon as i can find a computer store where i can
buy a dual procsessor motherboard, i will really make some interesting pics :}
