Wormy hole

I thought this one was really cool too, so I'm sharing it with you. It reminds me of what a wormhole would look like in a spacetime grid in some NOVA program about intergalactic travel.  This is going to be the last image of this set, and I will likely be taking a week off from posting content to think up some new pretty quasions that may or may not be that mathy.

She sells seashells?

this one looks to me like a couple of seashells facing opposite directions, or more vaguely like a pair of eyes.  Whatever it is, its definitely MATHEMATICAL!

More bars in more places

I could make this go on forever but it becomes messier the longer i keep it going.  A cool thing to point out on this one is how the overlap between the diamond shapes becomes more and more complex with each overlap.  I wish fooplot would animate the plotting of my function so i could see how it builds itself.

the evil eye REDUX

i think this is a much cooler version of the evil eye in my first post.  Instead of a single line that spirals out really fast, it is actually a bunch of near circles that spiral out really fast, forming a spiral shaped dense area where they circloids touch (circloid is not a technical term by the way).

dancing shadows

i think this is the coolest one in this set. It reminds me of a pair of lovers' spirits dancing their final dance as they unite with another in eternity.  That or I played too much World of Warcraft.

pretty curves

this one is actually a prototype to mathy mountain, but i thought the darker curves were particularly pretty in this version, so i'm sharing it with you

mathy mountain

this one is actually my favorite out of these functions that i'm doing.  It's only the half of the function where t<0, and the line at the top connects to a mirror image of this picture, but in my opinion its cooler as a mountain than some kind of conic twister

Theres a crack

this one has a crack in it, i have a variable set that changes the width of the crack, but i kept it small in this picture so it doesn't look ridiculous.

Oh No! The evil eye of the TI-83 has been angered, you better feed it some puny linear functions.

Don't sue me microsoft

This is not the Xbox logo, though if i inverted the colors and made the whitespace green i could pass it off as a mathmatically generated knockoff.  All of these are original parametric functions in their pure and unaltered state.  Other than my first post, I will not share any of my equations, but you are welcome to guess them.

another cool one

I think this one is pretty cool as well, kind of reminds me of Wolverines claws.  I'm going to give a little bit of credit to fooplot, a free graphing program online that lets me make these beautiful functions, though most of the cool parts of my graphs are a result of 'breaking' the graphing program, by having the harmonic motion of the plotted points moving faster than the machine can plot accurately. So thank you fooplots for not being a godly supercomputer that no amount of exponential growth can break.
