O.K. so it's a coincidence like the Face on Mars , but there are naturally occurring shapes in action in our universe like the Spiral Galaxies and water down a drain , mathematics, physics and chemistry can explain patterns in nature at different levels. Patterns in living things are explained by the biological processes of natural selection and sexual selection. Studies of pattern formation make use of computer models to simulate a wide range of patterns also, but to what level ? Does the relationship in formation of shapes to the processes naturally occurring happen within dark matter and energy and parallel universe ?
In the current model used to describe elementary particles, the Standard Model, the particles (leptons, quarks and gauge bosons) are point-like particles. Experimentally no substructure has been observed for either of those particles (e.g. the upper limit for the electron radius is something like 10 −22 m).
about the photo however...
Jan. 7, 2015: Although NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has taken many breathtaking images of the universe, one snapshot stands out from the rest: the iconic view of the so-called “Pillars of Creation.” The jaw-dropping photo, taken in 1995, revealed never-before-seen details of three giant columns of cold gas bathed in the scorching ultraviolet light from a cluster of young, massive stars in a small region of the Eagle Nebula, or M16.
In celebration of its upcoming 25th anniversary in April, Hubble has revisited the famous pillars, providing astronomers with a sharper and wider view. Although the original image was dubbed the Pillars of Creation, the new image hints that they are also "pillars of destruction."
The pillars are composed of cool molecular hydrogen and are about 7,000 light years away , the larger pillar on the left is about 4 light years in length.
A light-year is a unit of length used to express astronomical distances. It is approximately 10 trillion kilometres (or about 6 trillion miles). As defined by the International Astronomical Union (IAU), a light-year is the distance that light travels in vacuum in one year.
