    The Harmonies of Light is neat @KR62 , it reminds me of the musical performances described in The Seventh Tower book series by Garth Nix
    a bit less dramatic in real life, but still a great sound
    I love the pendulum wave effect, is there a way to code that?

    @KR62 I recommend using this course at Khan Academy to introduce yourself to the power of programming to explore creative disciplines
    KR62
    @KR62
    ok, thanks very much Eric for the suggestion.

    @Lilyheart
    "code that" is a very generic term. Code a website? Code a windows program? "Coding" is a huge disciple with many nooks and crannies.

    thanks for checking out Jim Oliver's stuff, I love it.

    @SimplyPhy
    yeah that’s easy, especially if it’s just along a single axis. You’ll have to familarize yourself with fundamental programming principles prior to being able to meaningfully reproduce that sort of visualization

    @KR62
    Yea, that's the problem with me. Since I don't have the proper background or training I'm kind of lost, just have lots of things I love.

    @SimplyPhy
    start with khan academy, and go through their intro to js course, which is the pre-requisite to the one I shared above
    then we can talk more about bringing something to life

    What eric said.

    @KR62
    Awesome, that's what I needed, a plan of action! Thank you.

    @Lilyheart
    Also since fractals is your bag, I say also look at doing as much khan academy math as you can as that will help incredibly in fractals.

    @KR62
    thanks Lily.
    Eric, what kinds of things are your specialty? Instruction, gaming, creative stuff...?
    what's JS, Java Script?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    Yup! you got it.
    The part that makes websites fun (oversimplification, but still...)
    If I were to remake that pendulum wave in whatever form I wanted to, it would have a javascript base (using paper.js)

    @KR62
    Ok, so I guess this is over for tonight? It goes til 7?

    chat party never stops truthfully. It's a daily thing. Just Tuesday night is reserved for coding for those who need a set time on the calendar to work.

    @KR62 I basically live here because I work on computers for a living
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    This was done with paper.js

    @KR62
    Oh, that sounds good. So I can log in anytime if I have more questions.
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    yupyup!
    I really need to get the sound effects working on that dots page.
    KR62
    @KR62
    See, I think sound can be linked to linear shape, such as lines or something, brown and black would be long deep sounds and red, orange and yellow shorter, higher sounds. Make a song/visual display of the elements together.

    @KR62 NPR had someone on recently who actually hears in colors
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    synesthesia is what that's called
    Eric Phy
    @SimplyPhy
    @KR62 there are many ways I can answer that. I’m most interested in leveraging psychological models in the development of human engagement platforms. I guess more plainly, my specializations are javascript and sass; but i’m more engrossed by meaningful, transformative work than the tools with which I use to accomplish it.

    Wow Eric, that's a complex area of study. Good for you! I am all about spirituality and transformation.

    @lantech19446
    what's your favorite spiritual pursuit?
    KR62
    @KR62
    Anybody study Knot theory? I'm also into Turks Head knots and would love to see them done in animation. How about KnotPlot?
    As for spirituality I love receiving Reiki treatments, Holy Fire Reiki is very good and it works for me. I'm also into incredible gifts received from loved ones who have passed over into the spiritual world. Some people even channel deceased people, like Esther Hicks.
    She channels the spirit of Abraham.

    My house is HAL9000 and attempts to call it anything else will leave you in the dark.

    @KR62
    Does any of that spiritual stuff ring a bell with you Jon? Are you familiar with Reiki energy healing?
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
