In the Sphereverse, the universe is a sphere 40 units
in diameter. When
there is a floor present, the floor is 2 units down from center.

In this animation you are sitting back 10 units from
the center of the
sphere. The light source is translating from left to right centered on
the x axis. You are not moving, only the light. All the concentric
rings are caused by your multiple reflections in the sphere.
This animation is the same as the above except now you
are sitting 2
units higher than before. That is, you are two units above the plane
that the light is traveling in. You are looking straight forward and
not down towards the light.
This time were back to our original height of 0, but
this time the
light is 2 units higher. It's travelling form left to right just like
in the first two animations.
This animation has the light sitting centered at
<0, 0, 0> and
you are moving. You start back at the sphere's edge at -20 units and
move straight toward the light, through it, and on to the other side at
+20 units. Notice how the concentric rings change and get thicker as
you approach the center of the Sphereverse. This is because you are
approaching the focus of the reflection and the reflection is a focused
image of yourself! After you pass through the light source the rings
start getting thinner again. Finally, as you approach the far side of
the Sphereverse you begin to see a refleciton of yourself, which is the
dark circle which finally fills the view at the end.
Now we take the same journey as above except you are 2
units above the
light and looking straight ahead. This looks much the same as before
except the concentric rings are not centered on each other.
In this animation the light source is at the center of
the sphere and
you and position back 10 units. You don't move, but simply rotate to
look all around you.
