  • “When each piece of a shape is geometrically similar to the whole, both the shape and the cascade that generate it are called self-similar”. – Benoit Mandelbrot
  • “In many growth processes of living organisms, especially of plants, regularly repeated appearances of certain multicellular structures are readily noticeable…. In the case of a compound leaf, for instance, some of the lobes (or leaflets), which are parts of a leaf at an advanced stage, have the same shape as the whole leaf has at an earlier stage. Aristid Lindenmayer
