I may be an illustrator, but sometimes what I really wish that I was was a mathematician.  I wish I could dive into the language of math and understand things like this, the latest sub-realm of string theory, E8.
I don't know how they've done it, but this is apparently the visualization of the mathematical equation of what the 8th dimension looks like.  Or something like that.  I currently have this as my desktop pattern, because it's so beautiful and I'm hoping that maybe it will make my brain grow by having it around on a daily basis.
This is another diagram of this phenomenon, called a Coxeter plane root system.  If you want to try and learn about this stuff, check out this Website.

Otherwise, I hope you can just enjoy how beautiful nature ends up being, even when it's pure math.
