Trailing Clouds by LaPurr Trailing Clouds by LaPurr
Ultra Fractal 5.03


Those who have watched me for a while know that I'm an atheist but much art, music and literature has been created with religion/god as the basis or theme. Religion informs culture, shapes culture and is pervasive in our lives, regardless of whether or not we agree with it. We all use religious themes and examples at times to explain what we mean, knowing that others with the same cultural context will understand perfectly. One doesn't have to believe in god to use spiritual imagery or to appreciate the artistic beauty created in the name of religion.

In that vein, I named this fractal for a line in the long poem Ode: Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood by William Wordsworth.

'Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting:
The Soul that rises with us, our life's Star,
Hath had elsewhere its setting,
And cometh from afar:
Not in entire forgetfulness,
And not in utter nakedness,
But trailing clouds of glory do we come ...
'

Reminds me of a seahorse's tail...

And that's so true. Even if you don't believe in or agree with a religion, you can always appreciate the art and culture that it inspired.
