Four Dimensional Hyperspace?
I'm throwing this out there in an attempt to find out the truth about these types of images which I stumbled across by accident while I was investigating simulacrum in NASA SDO images.

the following article seems to describe the phenomena

[link to www.strangehorizons.com]

this 'process' works with any type of elemental image e.g. nature, and I also obtained an interesting result when I applied it to Da Vinci's painting The Last Supper.

This video was made from one image of an erupting Volcano in Chile which I flipped horizontally and vertically and mirrored. The 'faces' in the video persist the more you zoom into the image..in other words to infinity

"If one understands that socialism is not a share-the-wealth programme, but is in reality a method to consolidate and control the wealth, then the seeming paradox of super-rich men promoting socialism becomes no paradox at all. Instead, it becomes logical, even the perfect tool of power-seeking megalomaniacs.

Communism or more accurately, socialism, is not a movement of the downtrodden masses, but of the economic elite."

Re: Four Dimensional Hyperspace?
it also works with any image from a Space telescope (Hubble, Spitzer etc.) this is a video I made from one image of the Carina Nebula

Yea I was pretty amazed too!

here's the image I accidentally stumbled upon

1-19 M3

I was playing around with my free software and that image suddenly appeared somehow when I was drunk. I thought it was sort of cool but didn't try to replicate the image until I saw the stupid coronal hole triangle thread which sort of pissed me off

chuckle

then I applied the same effect towards the end of that thread to the full disc A1A193 image and it actually turned out to be sort of interesting.

go figure

Sorry I didn't respond to your post earlier but better late than never. I'm not signed in and have been banned for quite some time so I'll need to look for my password etc.

it's a very simple process.

flip the images either Horizontally or vertically then flip it back and merge the luminance 50%

that's how I describe it. If I knew more about photo editing I could describe it better.

Saying that I've just started playing with perspective.

I offset the images (in the case of the following video by 42%) then stack the image with it's opposite, set the perspective then mirror that and combine the two.

via: Hyperspace Reality by Saul-Paul Sirag
[link to www.williamjames.com]

Even though Plato had said of his Academy: "Let no one enter here without geometry," it took many centuries for geometry to extend to the 4th dimension. It was the 4th dimension as a doorway to the spiritual realm that inspired this geometric foray. The philosopher who attempted to geometrize the Platonic realm was Henry More (1614-1687), an influential colleague of Isaac Newton at Cambridge University. He taught that the spiritual realm extended into a 4th dimension, which he called "spissitude." But this sort of thinking caught on only when mathematicians began exploring the geometry of higher dimensional spaces.

August Moebius (1790-1868) is most famous for his discovery of the Moebius strip, a surface that has only one side. But in 1827 he described how a 3-d object (such as a right handed glove) could be turned into its mirror image (a left-handed glove) by rotating it through 4-dimensional space. Such a rotation could also be used to tie or untie a knot (whose ends are connected as in the mathematical definition of a knot); and link or unlink a chain.

Johann Carl Friedrick Zoellner (1834-1882), an astronomer at the University of Leipzig (where Moebius taught), tried to prove that the spiritual realm was 4-dimensional by having mediums such as Henry Slade link two wooden rings (one of oak and one of alder). Slade never did this, but succeeded in convincing Zoellner that he could move things through the 4th dimension by (among other things) tying four trefoil knots in a loop of string whose ends were sealed together. Zoellner wrote about these ideas in the book, Trancendental Physics, which made the notion of the 4th dimension abhorrent among scientists.
