About the algorithm:
This program is the result of a flight of fantasy experiment.
It is created from a number of elements and alphabets of other programs written
in this time period:
- Closed curves formed by random points displaced around a circle and smoothed
by 3rd degree spline functions.
- Zig-zags and square waves from the alphabet of earlier programs.
- Incomplete grids forming the illusions of circles.
