Cross Grid

Hello there!

Yesterday I had created a grid of points (an ESRI shape file). When I had opened it through the OpenEV viewer, I'd got to see that it looks a correct grid. Every point as a geometry was represented in a form of a green cross. I had started scrolling the mouse wheel and got amazed. When zoomed out a lot, till picture comes to center of a screen, the grid resembles its atomic element: a green cross! Grid approaches the cross as long as you zoom out. What happens then? It becomes exactly a cross!

That gives another illustration of an idea, that every atomic part of something compound reminds us the whole given the whole is constructed using same atomic parts.

P.S. Do you see an atom with electron(s) when looking into a mirror?
