attractor sets

Sets of values, arranged in rings, seek to be near all other similar values.


figure a. rings arrange themselves so that their color objects cluster into groups
The idea behind a process of this type is to illustrate the environment of relationships formed between groups of unique composition. We are all familiar with this behavior. People seek connections with others whom have common interests. Through these connections, they are unknowingly brought into a vast network of friends and associates.

Attractor sets are unable to use their rotation as a method of fitting more precisely to their attractors. This is a known deficiency. As such, each grouping is randomly assigned a constant rotational velocity to keep things interesting.
figure b. although there exist many rings, each with unique value objects attached, the system finds an organization that encourages the grouping of all values
