Invaders are friendly expressions of numerical magnitude.
Using only 15 bits, a mirror, and a little patience, we can render
32,768 unique instances of them.
Arrangement of invaders is based on a recursive fractal method. Given
a region, an invader is placed within a random percentage of it. The
process is then repeated for the remaining spaces until the regions
become indistinguishably small. 






0000 Approximately
30% of all possible invaders 


The invader's time amongst humans is going well
so far.
