the fractal shape of life

A day is like a whole life. You start out doing one thing, but end up doing something else, plan to run an errand, but never get there... And at the end of your life, your whole existence has that same haphazard quality, too. Your whole life has the same shape as a single day.

--mathematician Ian Malcolm, Jurassic Park (by Michael Crichton)
