THIS IS SOOTHING


The Splendor of Color: A Kaleidoscope Video

For some reason involving the way our mind, consciousness, color perceptors, visual pattern recognition systems and visual motion predictors are connected to our emotions, the beautiful colors of these fractal flame images combined with the gently changing forms of a slowly rotating kaleidoscope is a soothing, calming, relaxing and pleasant experience.

These are soothing and calming kaleidoscope videos that I made to help people with PTSD. They are also useful for dealing with intense paranoia. A lot of cannabis, mushroom and LSD users watch this video if they start feeling paranoid and it guides them back to a pleasant reality and a more enjoyable trip. These videos are good for meditation and are used in some clinical settings for guided hypnosis.

This video also is soothing and mesmerizing for crying babies and children suffering from autism, as well as older adults who are suffering from advanced Alzheimer's. I keep getting orders for Splendor Version 1.5 from the Netherlands because the DVDs keep wearing out in an advanced Alzheimer's video watching facility there, where the DVD plays on a loop all day.

I have versions of the kaleidoscope that turn faster than version 1.5 shown above, but this is the slowest of them all. This is the one that the advanced Alzheimer's patients prefer. The still photos of the fractal flames are being rotated in 360 degrees over 120 seconds, or half the speed of the second hand on a clock.

These spectacular videos are two full hours of crystal clear, colorful, detailed and ever-changing kaleidoscopes with modern, relaxing background music. Created for enjoyment on your PC or away from the computer on Media Players connected large HDTVs in home theaters.

Take a break from the noise and haste of daily life and play 120 minutes of calm, gorgeous, continuously changing kaleidoscopes made from rotating fractal flame images.

Give your eyes a bright and colorful reward while you relax and enjoy the ride as endless patterns and color combinations slowly rotate and evolve in a hypnotic, mesmerizing dance of light.

Credits

For the longest time I've wanted to make a kaleidoscope video to add to the mix of what's out there, but I just didn't know how to do it. My math and programming skills are pretty elementary, so what might have been an easy task for many smarter or more experienced people was a very challenging one for me.

Slowly but surely, I learned the necessary skills. One quantum leap in my progress occurred when through some Google searching I finally found a simple kaleidoscope example on Terence Tsang's Shine Draw instructional website. (That link used to be here but he has since taken it down.)

What had frustrated and confounded me for years took him an hour and a half to complete. After taking many programming classes at school, I was able to modify and expand his example code by adding several hundred lines of my own, until I had a working version suitable for video creation that I understood. That mostly involved finding lots of open source code for manipulating files and processing images.

About the Artwork

The beautiful fractals used in this video were based on original flame formula parameter sets created by other very talented artists and posted on the web as instructional examples. I am extremely grateful for their decision to share some of their parameters with the public and in these cases to permit commercial use by others.

Many of these parameters were from Blatte's Fractal Resources. Many others were shared on the now inactive Fractal Repository website. There is an unsupported mirror of this site archived here.

The hypnotic background music is written and performed by Bjorn Lynne. The soundtrack songs are "A Journey Within" and "Endless Oceans."


Download Access to All of My Kaleidoscope Videos

All of my videos are available for free in their entirety in highly compressed web streaming quality without overlayed ads on YouTube (see the playlist and fully embeddable videos below). If you'd like a much higher bandwidth Master quality version for direct playback on a PC or Media Player, you can purchase download access to all of my videos in 30p Blu-ray quality for $10 by clicking on the button below.

If you are mentally ill, a caregiver for someone who is, or a professional who deals with mental illness, you are encouraged to freely copy and share these videos with others who may benefit from them. While I am encouraging you to share these with people, I do not want these being sold by others for money or profit.

These are very large video files (22GB or 24GB), so to download these, you will probably only have success if you use a download manager, such as this one from Microsoft for PCs or this one for the Macintosh.


Physical Media
(DVDs and Blu-rays)

While I'm trying to steer people towards the Master quality digital downloads (see the button above), you can still order the DVD and Blu-ray versions of Splendor Versions 1.2 and 1.3.

Splendor Version 1.2 turns at 30 seconds per REVOLUTION (more stimulating). Splendor Version 1.3 turns at 60 seconds per REVOLUTION (the same as the second hand on a clock - relaxing). Those kaleidoscopes are available here via Amazon: KaleidoscopeStore.com. All versions are available with digital download access.
