I'm following the "voices" ... fascinated.
Thank you again and again dear John :o)

Is it not an instance of those non-deterministic, self-simillar, unstable
systems that Benoit Mandelbrot simulated (chaos and strange attractors
...) with the help of very quick (;o) processors?

I think you described very well a facet (or instance) of this system -
namely it's fractal structure.

I hope, together with you, for understanding, and implementing by free
