In 1993, Melinda Green discovered a novel approach to visualizing the Mandelbrot set that yielded the now iconic Buddhabrot. In the course of my apeirographic explorations, I have found other luminous figures hidden within the complex plane. I call them anthropobrots.

I have written a mathematical article, “The Multitude behind the Buddhabrot”, that defines anthropobrots and related concepts mathematically via the definitional framework that led me to their discovery.

Through correspondence with James Travers, I have learned that his own experimentation with the Buddhabrot algorithm led him down similar paths to those that have brought me to the anthropobrots. In fact, he has discovered a variety of Buddhabrot-related fractal forms generated through altered equations, and calls the results Buddhabrot Mutants.
