The Fundamentals will all be inspired by my own relationship, as an individual, with the key aspects of life. They will include a number of things I consider important on a very abstract level. (I'm pretty much an abstract person myself). There will be seven fractals in total in this saga, this one being the seventh (and last).
The Inquisitor represents my relationship with my inner self. As the title might suggest, it's a relationship that's heavily based upon questioning and exploring the depths of my psyche. I crave to understand myself and know who I am and what I want, both because I find self-analysis fascinating and because I know that, if I don't spend time enough to figure myself out entirely, then none will. In order to let others know who I am, I *have* to know myself first. And I like coming off as the clear-minded sort of person, unafraid of displaying how long a time I actually spend thinking about myself. It may sound selfish, but it's a very important part of my life experience.

This struck me as the most logical conclusion of the whole series, considering its natural development: first, exploring the relationship I have with knowledge and imagination, both characteristics I have internalised in some way; then proceeding to ambition, possibly my strongest tie with reality, as I am a goal-oriented person and won't give up on what I want from my life; then analysing surroundings, expanding my vision outwards; reaching out to others, who are found in said surroundings; and from there exploring my feelings, that keep me linked to a number of important people in my life; and from there going back to myself. Can you see it? It's all linked. It's a circle I have created with these seven fractals, with each entity/emotion/sensation connecting to another. So here I am, crowning this artistic experience with the last of seven chapters. I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did enjoy myself while I was making them; it was a great opportunity to go on a short journey of self-discovery for me as well. Expect to see more sagas from me in the future! :nod:
