Today, you are a member of … Cursing Recursion

droste effect

The definition of Recursion: See Recursion.  A snake deep throating its own tail.  Circular arguments. Gödelian sentences. Sourdough. The reward of Patience is Patience. Is recursion deja vu? The Tower of Brahma. And then, and then. Mise en abyme. Those annoying nesting doll tchotchkes. Fibonacci sequence. Tragedy then farce then tragedy then farce.  Members: this week if the recursing is getting a bit repetitive, remember, it’s neither Douglas Hofstadter’s nor Möbius’ birthday but it will be in some week, and then again, so instead of cursing recursion celebrate as only a replicate can by finding the strange loop factorial in the mirror.
