It is our perception that makes it linear and of substance and motion when in fact whatever is going on behind the curtain is something like a 'fractal cascade'....the ultimate question is what made the rules and how?
We know the expansion is NOT fractal, although that would seem like an obvious and intuitive assumption.
We know there's selection and recombination going on on all levels (e.g. making children, strains of bacteria, viruses, fungi and basically all sorts of animae), there's adaptation of form (mountains erode to make way for rivers; carbon condensed to diamonds to facilitate the forming of efficient surface landscape while at the same time storing energy for future breakdown and expulsion); there's a definite proclivity to homeostasis, such as when our kidneys shut down, the body will expel more carbon through the lungs to maintain the pH balance of our blood (Krebs cycle) or how the decrease of the ice mass of the Arctic is cyclic (4000 year cycles) and is always commensurate with increase of ice mass of the Antarctic https://www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/na ... han-losses
(hence the names) or increased volcanic activity wherever a reduction of global temperature is required to maintain homeostasis etc etc.
There are many more that I haven't mentioned and those I/we are simply not aware of, that make it all non-linear, but
When we observe more of these within and without ourselves/our planet/w.e., we will become more aware of the driving motive and this means we will certainly and inevitably
understand "the source", provided we have enough time.
