  1. It looks a lot like an Ediacaran organism, growing by segments, and keeping the ratio of surface to volume constant.
    Alternatively you could see it as the larval form of something that gets much bigger, more complex and more hungry.
    Philip K. Dick idea: “Are you sure it is a lamp mimicking an organism and not the other way around?”
