Mandelbrot & Julia sets

I'm curious why no source ever seems to mention that the Mandelbrot
set and the Julia sets can be regarded as perpendicular cross-sections
of a single 4 dimensional fractal. Its four dimensions are real c,
imaginary c, real z, and imaginary z. The Mandelbrot set is the
cross-section where the two z coordinates are both zero. The Julia
sets are cross-sections where the two c coordinates are constants.

I'm working on a program which will let me view arbitrary cross-
sections of the thing. I'm attempting to visualize what the whole
thing looks like. I also plan to try and measure its 4-volume.

Surely this isn't original with me. Is it?
