@nomand He is amazing. Even more when you realize that all the animations are made programmatically with software he built.
"I create most of the animations programmatically, using a python library named "manim" that I've been building up. I’ve also used Grapher for a number of 3d animations.
Everything is open-source on github."

Thanks to @pamela for creating an icon for my application. Thanks to this, it can now be found on Flathub.
As it turns out, if you don't have an icon, the application will not show up in a search.
People interested in maths might find this application to be quite useful.

I will miss you, Joe. May your inboxes never overflow.
See that white tree there amongst the green ones? I'm not certain, but I think it's an albino.
Like animals, some tress are born as albinos, devoid of pigments due to a genetic mutation. Without photosynthetic pigments, a tree cannot harvest energy from sunlight and normally wouldn't survive. But in a rainforest, any tree will be nurtured by the rest of its community, sharing resources through their roots. Even a tree unable to give anything back.

My favourite #lisp song is "Eternal Flame".
