The recursive centaur: half horse, half recursive centaur

if you're having trouble visualizing the recursive centaur i've made this helpful reference

@selfsame I like this whole follow my soundcloud meme when posts get popular. now I am listening to your music with an image of recursive centaur in my brain and its cute.

@selfsame would a recursive centaur really look like this or would it be instead 🤭 tail-recursive

if a recursive centaur wore pants
would the pants have finite volume
what about finite surface area

if a recursive centaur's pants had finite volume and infinite surface area
would we call them Gabriel's horny pants
or Torricelli's trumpety pants

@selfsame
As it charges you, it goes slower and slower, and never actually reaches you....

@selfsame I hate to be like this but there's porn of this w/human legs

@robotcarsley @selfsame Also good, yet it lacks a connotation of the human/horse hybrid that is a key feature of the centaur. I feel that is an important detail to include.

@daedalus @selfsame yes, but there is no human component, it's horse butts all the way down

@selfsame Are you hacking Blender in Clojure or something? :)

@feoh oh no that's just an array modifier in blender

@selfsame Let's get down to brass tacks. How would it wear pants?

@ieure believe the thread consensus was even with infinite leg holes it's still a single pair of pants

@selfsame

Shouldn't there be a regular horse beside it because limits?

@selfsame ok so since this is half a centaur plus a quarter of a centaur plus an eighth of a centaur etc. that means it adds up to .9 repeating, which equals 1.

Therefore the recursive centaur is, precisely, one centaur.

@selfsame thabks this was helpful in keeping me up at night

@selfsame wait YOU'RE the origin of the recursive centaur?? this was all over my chats a few months back

mastodon is really becoming the new tumblr, solely in the sense that content originates here and gets reposted without attribution everywhere else

@selfsame if you make this radially symmetrical along it's butt, you go all the way back to starfish

using the standard recursive centaur as a reference how would one properly render these creatures

the recursive mermaid: half fish, half recursive mermaid

the recursive minotaur: half bull, half recursive minotaur; guards a fractal maze

the recursive satyr: half goat, half recursive satyr but with exaggerated genitalia

the recursive cyclops: a giant but, centered in its forehead, half the number of eyes of a recursive cyclops

the recursive half-elf: half elf, half recursive half-elf
