Silicon Simulations

The most powerful use of computers is as a tool to enhance the human imagination, whether it be imagining artistic or scientific concepts. These silicon extensions of the brain are allowing us to visualize processes and ideas that are impossible to understand otherwise.

This is a video that briefly describes some of the many uses for the processing & visualization power of computers.

Seed Magazine: "Science in Silico"

One of the projects featured is the Millenium Simulation, which I discussed in a post about the fractal nature of reality: Universal Mind.
