The more interesting case, however, is fractality in nature. As you can imagine, the regularity is not perfect. Fractals of this sort can be found in lightnings, snowflakes, crystals, sea shells, peacock’s tails… even the common broccoli. View images I liked here

Posting below screenshot combination images of a hand and sea/plant life from the docu “An Ecology of Mind: A Daughter’s Portrait of Gregory Bateson,” which are reminiscent of fractality, in loose terms. More important is their evolutionary-ecological meaning, namely, treating shared configurations as a token of “belonging” to a co-evolving eco-system. Biosemioticians, I expect, would have a lot more to say on the subject.


An applicable description would be “nest of relationships,” used in a comics substory in the movie, where the analogs of a hand are a rose and a bunch of bananas:
