Satori

2.0

A screensaver that creates flowing, meditative images.

Overview

Satori is a screensaver for OS X that creates flowing, meditative images based on various mathematical formulae.

Version 2.0 is compatible with OS X 10.9 and 10.10 (and should run on later OS X releases as well). Satori uses six different mathematical formulas in many combinations, to produce a staggering variety of images. The images Satori makes aren't just still frames; they animate continuously, flowing and oozing color. It's impossible to describe; it has to be seen. Satori was originally written in 1990, about 25 years ago. It became a part of the After Dark screensaver package produced by Berkeley Systems, along with Rose and many other modules. After Dark is only a distant memory now, but in collaboration with Infinisys Ltd., I've revived Satori to run again.

Huzzah! One of the most beautiful screen savers of all time returns!

In the nearly 16 years since Mac OS 9 killed off After Dark, there has been nothing like Satori. (Swirl was the closest imitator, but it fell far short.)

Thank you so much, Ben!

P.S. Do experiment with the settings, especially with using the Ctrl key while Satori is running to change color palettes on the fly. (Some of the palettes are truly gorgeous, others less so.)

Wow - that's too psychedelic for me, like a something that should be playing on a screen behind the late Jimi Hendrix. Hurt my eyes so I quickly uninstalled it. I much prefer Electric Sheep http://goo.gl/w2H0IH.

Only one star because you found Satori too psychedelic? Really?

I could understand giving a screen saver the lowest possible rating if you found it truly ugly, or if the software were horribly buggy, but simply because it's not your cup of tea?

To each his own, I suppose.

(To be fair, one of Satori's color palettes is ghastly; perhaps you had the misfortune to see it first and quit in horror.)

P.S. I too love Electric Sheep (at their best, I consider it and Satori the two most beautiful screen savers of all time), but it's also quite capable of generating appalling ugliness on occasion.
