In guess it was probably close to 30 years ago I represented my church as the lay representative for a large denominations annual conference. The keynote speaker was an American church pastor born and raised in Korea.
As I recall the message was very inspiring though I don’t remember all of the details except his closing statement.
He said something like this…
Just over 100 years ago the Christian faith was planted by American missionaries in Korea in a culture that accepted no outside points of view. Now just over 100 years later there are over 10 million Christians in Korea.
In the Korean church there is a worship service every morning at sunrise; every Wednesday night; every Friday night and a Sunday morning and evening service. A Korean pastor preaches over 500 sermons every year.
Then he said;
Do you know why we do this ?
He paused and looked around the room where there were about 2500 people.
Everyone was waiting for the answer.
He then said;
We do this because you taught us to do this !
I’ve never heard a room so silent in all of my life with 5 people never mind 2500 people !!
Hmmm, maybe too small to work on a phone. I view it on a laptop or desktop monitor, it even works on my monitor when the picture is only the dimensions of a big iPhone.
Not sure what causes it, but the smaller tentacles don’t move, probably the bands are getting too small to mess with your eyes so even the bigger bands are then too small on a phone screen.
(when I was adding the arrows in the photo editing software they were moving. )
The effect is like a film of oil on water and they drift/swirl forward ‘into’ the picture.
Staring at the black Mandelbrot in the middle lessens the effect than looking around the picture.
It works only when I focus on something else on the screen, i.e as I was reading the words above the picture, it seemed to be moving in the periphery. But it stopped as soon as I focused on the image itself(I’m using a laptop)
Oh! Whaow! And, here I was thinking, don’t over share
Okay, these are folks who do the same type of thing. They, including your share, often record live, and they are lengthy. The video you shared was an edited post from the live. They hit over 7 million on the post, previously edited. Anyhow, I subscribed. Their subscription count is still low.
These “moving” still images are so fascinating. Whether or not they “move” is entirely dependent upon where I am looking. In @leerla73 's version, if I stare at one specific circle, it stops moving, but any circle I’m not directly looking at appears to be rotating. It’s similar in @ninjas_with_onions 's version, but there are other spots in the big picture that I can look at and make the others “stand still.” I probably shouldn’t stare too long, though. I feel like I’ll disappear into a void.
