The repetition is the self-similarity, in essence the fractal nature
of the beast. Yet I believe there are points on the Mandelbrot
boundary that require an infinite calculation to determine if they're
in or out (believe because I haven't studied the maths - presumably it
has been proven one way or other). Bruno's conjecture IIUC is that
within the Mandelbrot boundary can be found points corresponding to
all possible calculations.
