The Persistence of Ignorance
The Persistence of Ignorance is a gallery of computer generated images. I create these images with a Raytracer, a kind of program that uses a 3D technique called (obviously) Raytracing to obtain a picture from a virtual scene, previously defined. There are many raytracing programs out there, most commercial, but I use only POV-Ray, an amazing and free raytracer, and his unofficial sequels MegaPOV, UberPOV and Hgpovray.
In addition to the galleries, the site contains some of the source code used to generate these, and also information about the techniques I often use. Finally, there is the almost mandatory links section with a few URLs related to POV-Ray. Please send any comment, suggestion or criticism, about the images or the site, to jaime at ignorancia (dot org).
Thanks for the visit, and enjoy the images!

The Cave sources
I've added the source code for The Cave scene, minus the speleologist figure which I cannot redistribute.
