Infinite regression, with housecat

“Nothing but turtles, all the way down!” Uh, make that “cats.”

It all began innocently enough when a user on an Apple help forum posted a picture of his cat, Frankie, contemplating the beauty of a flower. Shortly afterwards another user posted a picture of his cat bristling at the image of Frankie on the monitor. I decided this was too much fun and advanced the concept as The Infinite Cat Project which is, simply, cats regarding cats regarding cats in an electronic melieu.

They’re already up to 325 cats,

. . . like the imagination seeking
To propagate the imagination . . .

(Wallace Stevens, “Mountains Covered with Cats”)

What the hell is it with cats, anyway?
