Clusters uses a unique algorithm that gives life-like behaviors to particle systems.

This algorithm was inspired by the theories of biologist Lynn Margulus .

All organisms naturally gravitate to other kinds of organisms, and likewise are repelled by different organisms. These particles experience attractions and repulsions with other particles of different colors. They cluster into social pods, or scatter and flee, often mimicking biological behaviors. Clusters shapeshift and exchange parts of their identities, much like the tiny organisms that came together in early evolution to form symbiotic unions
