Exploring extreme scale: Alphabet/Abstraction.
Each letter consists of hundreds of versions of itself.
Zoomed out, these forms read as letters and we immediately comprehend their message: "iterate." 
Zoomed in, the language loses meaning. Each letter becomes a world to get lost in.

Each letter goes six iterations deep. 
For example, "A" was created by copying the original "A" three times, shrinking each by 50%, and arranging them to recreate the "A" letterform. This treatment was then applied to the set of three "A"s to create a set of nine, and the set of nine to create a set of 27, and so on.
