Interesting trivia- colour the odd numbered cells black and the evens white and you get the beginnings of a Sierpiński trianglew, a fractal which can also be generated from the Chaos gamew. Near random chaos in contrast to the beautiful mathematical structure of Pascal's Triangle Wink

Interesting trivia-[...]

Yeah, the Wikipedia article on Pascal's Trianglew goes into detail on some of the patterns found in that triangle, and I'm discovering a few of them myself from my studies.
