Description: I happened to be doing some methodological zooming on the Mandelbrot set. I had been especially intrigued by a video entitled "Metaphase" on HPDZ.net:

By following his technique, which starts out with a single cross formation and later becomes two and finally four crosses lined up in a row (the now famous "metaphase" image looks like chromosomes), I extended the process to 8, 16, and finally 32 little Xs! Every time I reiterate the process, I have to zoom many levels through the single, double, quad, and so on. After I had 32 Xs lined up in a little row, the two on either edge were so tiny they could barely be seen. I then zoom in through the center rather than go through another painful iteration.

(by this point, even with my Quad-core Phenom II running at 3.6Ghz and 64 bit calcs, the iteration count was climbing and becoming numbingly slow) hurt

I zoom in further to ultimately reveal a big "X" with each of four arms each containging sixteen Xs a piece, an X made up of Xs! I tinker around with the color mapping, save the file, and render big at 2400x2400 pixels and a whopping 782.8 zooms (magnification= 4.4*10^235) - That's smaller that one divided by a googol squared!!

See also my much deeper "XXX Fusion Cell" rendered following a nearby zoom path, only to a much much deeper level:

Thank you very much. Apparently, you haven't seen the sequel to this. It's a giant X made of of smaller Xs, which consist entirely of tiny X chromosomes. Prepare to have your mind blown:

Deep and technically excellent. A more original color scheme would have been nice though.

This one is a brilliant example of a bioform. I could even bet that the X-es are chromosome pairs!
