I do a heuristic traveling salesman solution to try to minimize how often it picks up the pen (because z-movement is very slow) which results in very interesting pen trajectories as it tries to draw long sequences of edges without lifting the pen
isn't it a bit weird how, if you consider 'time' to be a dimension, the universe is much much thinner in the time dimension than it is spatially
like, 14 billion years just isn't that many: that's less than 300 million human lifetimes, and if you stacked all ~8 billion currently living people's avg. 70 year lives end to end, it would be 560 billion years, or 40 times the age of the universe
compare spatially: 8 billion * 2m = 16 billion meters, or not even 1/3rd to mars (closest point: 55 billion meters)
