A wizard for sure, as are many others. I missed so much all those years ago but
already had seen plenty being done by Samuel.

I guess if I were to attempt my own "stacking stones" it would probably be
something like I had used for object interactions with simplistic 'sphere of
influence' for mass and gravity when I was doing rudimentary space simulations
in Basic programming (circa 1980's).
Not ideal for this, even if I could get it right in POV-Ray.
