title About the Need of Stopping in the Road: the Fruitful Pause in a Fertile Course

summary Our burdened end of the century seems to demand vertiginous progress, without pauses, frequently without even asking where this course leads. What is most important is to go further, is not to be left behind. In this view, computer science offers more alternatives in less time. However, its greatest risk is to make us covet more, without even trying to inquire what is its value or sense. After working in some researches on generation of forms, we were specially attracted by some of them. Instead of going further in the study of the new generative methods available, we decided to make a pause to look back at those forms we had already obtained. We decided to use computer instruments to understand more deeply forms that we apparently knew. This technology offered us the possibility of visualizing extraordinary forms, of exploring multiple series of curves hidden in their surface. By means of this work, we promote the need of making a pause in our work, in order to try to know intensively the object of our troubles and inquiries, giving it the indispensable time to enjoy it completely.
