"... these are the actual words that were used in ancient times to describe this. I think they called it the Flower of Life because it looks like a flower and because it ... [represents] the laws and proportions for everything alive and even not alive; everything that's manifested." ~Bernard Perona (a.k.a. Drunvalo Melchizedek)
This is truly Amazing!!!!! What program did you use, is it a fractal? I have made several variation of FOL but all by hand(Placing XForms manually) in Apo...none are precise. Would love some info if you can help me get more precise alignment. I've done some animations also of TFOL.
Fractal by definition, though a vector graphic. CAD-, vector- and regular graphic programs usually offer alignment options. Not familiar with Apophysis I assume your looking for coordinate calculations; displacement for circles (not being top and bottom) relative to center circles' center: x = radius /4 y = tangent
Alignment (provided for sufficient calculation precision) is least of concerns though; try avoiding duplicates on iteration of smaller scales (which will be redundantly filled) if you value semi-transparency.
