Hi kungfubeats. There are two ancient Hindu legends, one of which inspired the 'Big Bang' theory of modern times. That is the the legend of the
birth of the Universe from a cosmic egg. The other, lesser-known legend says that the Universe can be imagined to be Ganesh, the Elephant standing in
a pool of water, blowing water through his trunk onto his back. Now if we agree that the Universe is built on fractal principles, as you say we can
step back until we see one magnificent all encompassing Black Hole, surrounded by an immense accretion disk, sparaying two mighty fusing polar jets of
hydrogen gas in opposite directions. We could zoom back in and see our observable Universe in a small, turbulent, cooling and expanding portion of one
polar jet. And, perhaps- there is more than one Elephant out there...
