 OFFSET 0,5 COMMENTS Take a list of numbers (like 0,1,2,3,4,5,...) and then pair them up like this: (0,1)(1,2),(2,3),(3,4)... Then sum each pair, and insert the sum between the numbers, like this: (0,1,1), (1,3,2), (2,5,3), ... Finally, remove the parentheses: 0,1,1,1,3,2,2,5,3,... This mirrors the pattern used to make a dragon curve fractal. You take two points, then find one to insert between them. In the next iteration, you take those three points and find two numbers to insert between them. (Rather than summing the two numbers, a different function is used to find a point relative to two other points.)
