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

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


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.
