A Mandelbrot set zoom animation out-take

An evening pause: The creator of this computer animation calls this an out-take and explains why:

What is a Mandelbrot zoom blooper? It’s what happens when you commit 6 months of computing time on three computers to create something that doesn’t turn out the way you expect! The color rotations that begin at 1:36 were unintentional. However, the side effect is that the animation is much more psychedelic than expected due to the color cycling and also brings out details that are not apparent with still images.

I just find it fascinating how this illustrates the endlessly deep and infinite complexity of existence.
