Define "indefinite" in this context. How is a snowflake not an example of
an "indefinite" increase in complexity? How does the qualifier "indefinite"
Once again, we cannot give you any examples until you explain more carefully
what exactly you mean. Why don't you help us out?

But it does come from the physiochemical forces that govern the formation of
ice crystals, just as evolution is controled by other physiochemical forces
that create natural design in living organisms.
