This Just In

(click here for stereo version)
Recently published to Synergeo, a Fuller School asset: this "jumble pack" by John Brawley, rendered in POV-ray from output generated from a C++ package he authored.

Unlike Steve Waterman's quasi-spherical packings, which assume a CCP center for each ball, John lets his 100,000 strong army self-organize more casually ("at ease"), in accordance with his Tverse cosmology.

Kudos to Adrian Rossiter of Antiprism fame, for giving John some C++ coding pointers.
