A few days ago, I was exploring the region of the Mandelbrot set pictured last week. I saw an interesting feature near the center of the image, and discovered that it looked very similar to the surrounding area, but had four arms instead of two. I zoomed in a bit more, and found a similar shape with eight arms, then was mildly surprised when I saw an area near the center of that image that repeated the Mandelbrot set as a whole! I thought it worth sharing.
