Simulation of a couple thousand gravitationally attracted particles interacting with eachother. Looks kind of like a globular cluster or something :)

Is it a literal cluster fuck?

Redshift responds:

uh... maybe?

That's really good, I'm not sure how you'd make that. It's cool how they act differently overall every time you refresh. You should make something out of this.

That's fascinating, the system is totally chaotic, the collisions seems to be different every time I refresh, it's a very nice example of fractal geometry, can you please tell me if you have made some random number in the programming to make a new layout of collisions or it have always the same particles and distances?

Redshift responds:

Well, there is no collisions involved, and it can't really be considered fractal geometry. But they all start out at random positons.

Amazing! Do all the particles have identical masses? I replayed it quite a bit, and although the behavior is somewhat predictable, sometimes, after the first burst (when you can still make out distinct clusters), all cluster groups took off in different directions. Very impressive!
