Circle 2 rolls around outside of circle 1.

  1. Have you tried arriving at the mandelbrot set using the fractal spirograph method? I'm curious what would happen when experimenting with the GoldenRatio as the ratio of circle radii. Also, do you have parametric equations for the circle-within-a-circle fractal spirographs? I assume it's just epitrochoid or hypotrochoid equations nested several times, but I had trouble figuring it out.
