This past month has been incredibly stressful. I have had a rather large attack on my website, which is now down until further notice, and I worked at a job all day on weekdays. The result is that this video is possibly more rushed to completion than any other one I've made. The animation quality is below my personal standards and I feel like I should have edited the music some more, but I will unfortunately be out of town for a little while now, and to be honest I just want to have a break. I'd like to say that I'll come back and fix things up later, but in reality I know I won't. I don't know how this round of NATA will turn out, but I wish everyone the best of luck.

As far as the plot goes, I always sort of wanted to make something where the protagonist finds himself in what is basically the position of a god, and then breaks under the pressure. I also decided to mix in another idea I had which involved having the world contained inside itself, so that there would be an infinite string of identical worlds inside each other where a change in one affects all of the others because they are the same world. IT is from that concept that I tried to tie in this round's theme, "the butterfly effect", and also where I got the title "macrocosm" from. I still feel that there's a lot more I could have done with the concept, especially given the rushed quality of this entry, so maybe I'll revisit the ideas later or something.

I'd just like to give thanks to my friend Laura who helped play some of the music to save me some time, and once again, I need to thank Bing for his awesome music, which you can download at highfivespaceship.bandcam p.com.

It's deep and I love everything about it especially the part where he's carrying all those Earths showing all the weight that's on his shoulders when he shuts down the stabilizer of what looks like a hadron colider I give it a 10/10

The story really made me think and the music was great. The animation was good too, especially considering you said you were rushed. Well done!

Well, this turned out to have the highest score of anything in Round 3 of NATA 2012 and it really shows. It got a bit confusing, but it's still a great cartoon. I have always found the subject of recursion a wonderful one. It was like the one thing in math I was never taught. It would probably be the coolest thing too! The way there were so many Earths reminded me of the comic book "Crisis On Infinite Earths".

I doubt that was the intention, that's just such a great comic, probably my favorite of all time. It was also great how there was no dialogue and you let the story unfold by itself. It's always nice for people to come up with new and inventive stuff. It's just a true gem. Even the title gives a sense of wonder.
