Substrate... A fascinating screensaver that looks like cracking patterns in rocks or an overhead view of a growing city. It's fascinating to watch the intricate patterns build on your screen.

This is beautiful!

Especially when you turn up the density. Emergent complexity from simple rules…

Would like to see a Config option for crack/bg/sand colors/color ranges.

The color palette of the original was taken from a Jackson Pollack painting, titled Shimmering Substance.

Well, a good place to take a color palette from! I looked at some of the other algorithms at http://www.complexification.net/ and some are quite astonishing.
