Amazing Cellular Automaton Miracle

When I read Matt's post on cellular automata the other day, I decided to crank up my copy of Mathematica and have a little mess around. Above is a cellular automaton I created by using an extrememly large number of iterations. You know what, I thought, it would be interesting to zoom in on some of that randomness and see what I can see.

Then the weirdness happened. Below is pictured what I found when I zoomed in yet again. To be honest, I'm still a bit freaked out.

Okay, is there *any* truth in this whatsoever?
