Around 20 years ago, along with other approaches, he first imagined the concept behind the potential 3D Mandelbulb (barring a small mistake in the formula, which nevertheless still can produce very interesting results - see later), and also wrote a short story about the 3D Mandelbrot in 1987 entitled "As Above, So Below" (also see his blog entry and notebook). So the idea slumbered for 20 years until around 2007. Although the second one looks somewhat impressive, and has the appearance of a 3D Mandelbulb very roughly, we would expect the real deal to have a level of detail far exceeding it. Zooming in reveals some interesting detail, but I didn't find a great deal beyond the usual chaos. Full size shown here. Is this merely a fool's quest? WOW!
