Graphic Thoughts

Mathematical models have always helped people comprehend the concept of stability. When a certain phenomena kicks off with a full on blast, you can -- more or less -- predict that, eventually, things will slow down and reach a point of stability where further growth is sometimes not possible or -- perhaps -- makes no scientific sense.

Such has been the case of video game visuals. What started out as a bunch of dots on a screen in the 70s, rapidly evolved into cartoony looking figures running in your TVs in the late 80s, to impressive, blocky 3D figures shooting aliens in the mid-90s, to the last half of this decade, where watching mythical warriors leap on the backs of colossal giants -- while wielding fiery blades -- has become commonplace for gamers. Video game graphics -- finally -- seem to be reaching their point of stability or saturation.

The story is too old to be commented.

"Mathematical models have always helped people comprehend the concept of stability."

Stability is a relative concept. It pertains to a fixed situation/observation/applicat ion/etc within a preset range. I have no idea where the hell you're coming from on this one.

"When a certain phenomena kicks off with a full on blast, you can -- more or less -- predict that, eventually, things will slow down and reach a point of stability where further growth is sometimes not possible or -- perhaps -- makes no scientific sense."

For starters "a full on burst" is also called an explosion. An explosion is a rapid increase in volume and outlet of energy that travels outward from its' point of origin until dissipated. At no point does it (the explosion) "stabilize". The force is either there (reducing over time) or it's not.

So far, your article "makes no scientific sense" so let's move on to what you're trying to convey with it. Graphics are not "stabilizing". They are part of human mental evolution and as such are bound to change over time. It's that simple.
You do realize that extinction is the only alternative to evolution right?

I don't want to go on about it. Bitmob you have done yourselves a disservice today.
