New Photographs from the International Space Station Reveal Human Cities and Neurons Look Alike

Striking similarities in structure were observed when comparing photographs taken of human cities from the International Space Station of fluorescent microscopic images of human neurons. While the images of city lights have been scaled down to show large structures, those of our neurons have been blown up to reveal the detailed construction of our tiny brain parts. Either way, it seems that the products of our brains actually resemble their creator, instead of propagating wholly new and different creativity. Additional images of these fractal structures are available at Infinity Imagined.
