Fractal
visionaries:

For some reason I'm feeling a bit down this evening. It's
become one of those days when I look at my fractal creations and ask
myself, "why am I wasting my time on this stuff? -- it's all nothing
more than a grown up form of coloring books and crayons."

When I get this way, I think, "no matter how many fractals I find, I'll
always have seen only zero percent of all possible fractals."
And then I think of some new trick to write into a
formula and try out. And then I'm back at my computer
watching another image flow onto the screen. And then I know
why I
work with fractals. The answer is simple -- I do it because
it's
fun.

Today's fractal is another midget -- this time a midget of the third
order. I didn't give it much coloring effort, so the coloring
can probably be improved. I named it "cubed" because
Z-cubed is a major part of the formula. It was built with my
Test15 formula, which is turning into quite a productive one.
For convenience, the image is posted as always to a.b.p.f. and a.f.p.

I have a real winner fractal lined up for tomorrow, so keep posted.
