if you're having trouble visualizing the recursive centaur i've made this helpful reference
ok this got 12 retoots so please check out my actual soundcloud https://soundcloud.com/joseph-parker-186290609
@selfsame holy shit
@selfsame remember me when you're famous
@eq we're all in this together!
@selfsame This post made my day ty
@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.
@wakest bless your heart!
@selfsame still listening 27 minutes later so it must be good.
@selfsame Centaur Centipede
@selfsame 3D print nowww
@selfsame would a recursive centaur really look like this or would it be instead 🤭 tail-recursive
@selfsame would a recursive centaur wear pants
or like this
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
@selfsame I dub it the Centautilus.
@selfsame i wanna.. tip it forward
@selfsame I wish you hadn't
@selfsame EEEYAAAAH IT HAS NO FACE!!!!
@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 this is some cyriak stuff
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 of God, now I want to 3D print that
@selfsame thabks this was helpful in keeping me up at night
@selfsame well that is terrifying and woke me up
/me sends one to the 3d printer
@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
@melissasage haha yeah made for mastodon but it did the rounds
@selfsame this is a picture of my final form
@selfsame may god have mercy on your soul.
@selfsame if you make this radially symmetrical along it's butt, you go all the way back to starfish
@selfsame mildly horrifying, 10/10
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
