penrose tiling

this lovely design courtesy of http://tilings.math.uni-bielefeld.de/substitution_rules/robinson_triangle is an example of penrose tiling.

wikipedia explains the various remarkable characteristics of penrose tiling including the note that it is "self-similar" so the same patterns occur at larger & larger scales.

do you think we do this in life? just keep hanging out with people who have similar values and opinions and life experiences and really, like the penrose tiling, "any finite patch from the tiling occurs infinitely many times"?
