How to Answer a Question: Flowchart
I've been frustrated by current events, and thought I'd make this to try to explain what I've been observing.
Is this complete? No. I didn't have enough room to include all his strategies to divide people. I didn't have the space to break down the dice rolls into more descriptive logic trees.
However, I think it's only a mildly distorted picture of what answers will result from asking the president questions.

Does Donald sometimes give honest and sensible answers? Yes. However, most of the time he doesn't.
You could almost make this flowchart into a game, but at the end everyone would either be really mad or laughing at how insane it was.
Hrm...... maybe I actually could make this into a game, with a few modifications.... 
Anyway, for now, I'm just submitting it.

If you support Donald, I hope you don't take too much offense at this. He has done every single thing I characterize him as doing, and with frequency.
However, I have never seen him apologize and admit he was wrong about something when he was confronted with contrary information.
Not once. I'd love to see a clip of him doing it, but I'm not sure one exists.

Anyway, if you enjoyed this, feel free to favorite it. If you want to say mean things to me, please don't. I always welcome constructive criticism, but I know the difference between disagreement and malice.
If you think I missed something important, feel free to let me know what it is.
If you don't care about politics, and want me to make new fractals, don't worry, I'll release some new ones soon.
Best wishes to you all.

Last night I had a dream.

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 6, 2017, 5:32 PM
In the dream I had, I was underwater, and there was a ray. It wasn't any real type of ray though. Its skin shifted between opacity and translucency. It was a curious creature, and if you touched it, which it didn't mind, bioluminescense would shine forth in a multitude of colors from it. Its flesh would briefly glow a cool blue on contact, but if you pressed yourself against it, it's veins and arteries would spring to light, in brilliant crimsons and purples. Its nerves would light up in networks of greens and golds, and it was always slightly shifting in its hues. It was like a living opal. A sentient creature more beautiful than anything I have ever seen, and probably the most beautiful thing I have ever imagined.

Of course, in the dream, I wasn't the one giving the ray a hug. I've never been that brash.
Alas, it was just a dream. I think that I shall never see anything quite that beautiful in life.
I miss the ocean though. I didn't think I would, but I do.
Maybe someday I'll see it again, though which ocean, and to what end, I do not know.

Night falls like a veil over the world, and while ice reigns here, it fails where it should be thriving.
I have seen the darkness of mankind.... yet, I think I have only imagined the light. Just like that dream.
We can make things that we think are beautiful, but for how long, and at what cost?
I have been somewhat adrift, thinking over the essence of what we are, living through all those that came before.
I had the questions, I have answers, I just wish my answers were better.
To many, perhaps all, this would seem strange. Why ask such questions? Why care about such matters?
I suppose my answer to that, is that it's all I've ever cared about.
I may be many things, but I can honestly say that I am a man who does not care about himself.
Maybe that is my doom. Maybe it is my salvation. I don't know, and I don't really care.
I will be what I am. I have at least imagined beautiful things.
I can make sandcastles, but I sometimes wonder why I should.
Is that age or despair, wisdom or dementia, apathy or cowardice?
I know much, yet desire either the unattainable, or nothing.
I must be a fool, but it's all I can be.

Winter Storms
I have born the howling winds of winter, as they have swept eddies of snow around my feet and frozen my very breath.
I have endured them, and their wrath was incapable of keeping me from my goals.
They are a formidable force though. One does not go lightly into winter storms, not if one wants to keep their life.
They're also beautiful in their own way, like all forces of nature.
It's not my favorite season anymore. It used to be when I lived in the tropics, but now... I know its hostility.
Nonetheless, I wanted to make a fractal inspired by them.
This one is minimalistic, and while it is highly abstract and not terribly complex, I felt it partially captured the essence of the subject matter.
I hope that you like it.

In My Heart of Hearts
Who are we really? Are we benevolent entities come to shape the world into something more beautiful? Are we the scourge, here to lay waste to the natural world as we make ephemeral temples our of the corpses of our predecessors? Are we capable of changing who we are, or are we doomed to live out the same scenario again and again?
Is there any way that we can save this world? Is there even a good reason to?
I don't know.
I am conflicted.
It's amazing how a simple question (not listed here) can change so much. 
Alas, I have stared into the hearts of black holes. I have seen the mesmerizing complexity that is life, and I know how the currents flow through and around this world. I have understood much of how the universe has unfolded.... and yet, I can look at all of that... everything.... and wonder if it really has any value at all.
Does that make me a monster?
I don't know.
Not even in my heart of hearts.

The Abyss Stares Back
I named this after a Nietzsche quote that ... I can relate to a lot. I thought that this fractal had some intriguing elements in it. IDK, I've been thinking a lot lately. Ha, as if I'm ever not.... anyway.... 
The Nietzsche quote is "If you start into the abyss, the abyss stares back.
This piece gives off a slightly eerie vibe in my opinion. The textures and colors are interesting, but the mist obscures so much, and there's something that just feels strange about it. Perhaps it's the broken symmetry, or the wavering lines. Maybe it's just me..... anyway, I hope you like this piece.

As a 23-year old Ph.D. student, there are many things in this world that I have yet to learn. I tend to take tasks very seriously, and the creation of art is important to me.

I began making fractal art back in 2006, shortly after I joined DA. Since that time, I have competed in a number of fractal contests and won several. My techniques vary significantly from some that you see among other fractal artists. I have remained on the outskirts of the community, which has in some ways stunted my growth as an artist, but simultaneously challenged me to develop my own techniques and gain a better understanding of the underlying mathematical principals that govern fractals. However, I have learned that it doesn't matter how much time you spend on techniques if you don't put your soul into the art you're making. It doesn't matter what median it is, without passion all you get is a hollow image, devoid of feeling.

While most of my art consists of fractals, I love to write, and I value my prose and poetry just as highly as my best fractals.

I am always eager to help people out, so if you have any questions about how I make my art, or if you would like me to make something for you, feel free to ask. B-)

Art

Art is the ultimate expression of the mind and soul. Within all of us lies the omnipresent potential to find peace, agony, joy and ire in all walks of life. How we choose to percieve situations is what defines us as individuals, and how we react is the ultimate test of our character.

The community on DeviantArt is truly incredible because of the amazing people who devote vast amounts of time and energy to make it so. Always remember to be respectful towards others and their art, for a stray callous word against something of extreme individual importance can cause far more torment than intended.
