I DARE you to watch this while high.

You will go mental at 1:15, 2:30, and the very end. Your minds will be blown. you have been warned.
This is the deepest ever zoom into the Mandelbrot set, a mathematical set using complex numbers. In this video, it zooms 275 orders of magnitude.
If you want to know more about the mandelbrot set, just ask.

The final magnification is 2.1x10^275 (or 2^915). I believe that this is the deepest zoom animation of the Mandelbrot set produced to date (January 2010).

Each frame was individually rendered at 640x480 resolution and strung together at 30 frames per second. No frame interpolation was used. All images were lovingly rendered by 12 CPU cores running 24/7 for 6 months.

Self-similarity (mini-brots) can be seen at 1:16, 2:30, and at the end 5:00.

During the straight line parts it looks like you are diving into a vagina.
