At first glance it looks as though this rendering is a prime example if not proof of the abstract inner workings of flames at this level. It is only with the current GPGPU technology that we are able to look into the window of this dynamic range, except for the electric sheep project that sets up 'flashmob-style' renderfarms online.

Check out the bosonic full spin on each of those particles, one of the properties of 6Li. /me thinks this just pnwz.... Those interested can email me for details like some pre-rendered ultrahighrez PNGs :)


This animation comprises of 12 parts of exactly 6 seconds repeated 3x per scene. Rendering was done on the GPU with 720p as a rez and mostly a detail of ~3000 because of the need to get rid of the vast amount of noise due to the zoom by-effect and the fabric of the edge of the 6Li 'atoms'. Again, for all clarity: nothing was modified or edited by me; this comes straight out of the flame field. Music from the 90's album Albedo 0.39 by Vangelis.


Background information:
Lithium (pronounced /ˈlɪθiəm/) is a soft, silver-white metal that belongs to the alkali metal group of chemical elements. It is represented by the symbol Li and has an atomic number of 3. Lithium was one of the few elements synthesized in the Big Bang. The nuclei of lithium are relatively fragile: the two stable lithium isotopes found in nature have lower binding energies per nucleon than any other stable compound nuclides, save for the exotic and rare deuterium. The transmutation of lithium atoms to tritium was the first man-made form of a nuclear fusion reaction, and lithium deuteride serves as a fusion fuel in staged thermonuclear weapons.
