Is there anything wrong in this picture?

At a low level, all formulas are correct, yet the emerged one is wrong. This is due to the encoding at different levels as discussed by Douglas Hofstadter with his famous Strange loop concept in his Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid book

The same applies for pictures, where every single picture can be owned privately yet the emerged one might break a copyright. For instance, check this picture of pluto made of private pictures (original link here):


This concept of emerging global concept from small local concepts is interesting 🙂
