NOT a tree!

Desert rivers in the Baja California

Desert rivers in the Baja California

Another Earth fractal. This aerial photo of desert rivers in the Baja California peninsula of Mexico shows the fractalic forms of nature. Not only is the scale impossible to assess, its pattern is also similar to that of tree branches, demonstrating how the same shapes recur in different settings. It also brings to mind the ancient Chinese concept of Li, incorporated into their word for physics,which translates as patterns of organic energy.
