Kaleidoscopic Dynamics
Pages 12

I magine for a moment that you are peering through a kaleidoscope, one with many vibrant colors of glass, elaborate pearls, and a variety of precious metals-silver, gold, and copper. As you turn the barrel, the image changes shape.. .a little. You turn the barrel again the same amount, and the image changes again.. .a little. Then you touch it ever so slightly and the entire image takes a new form. For some reason, the combination of the slight movement and the natural laws of physics has changed the reflection.. .forever. At that moment, you realize that you cannot return to the previous image and you must move forward.
