If we believe that the brain is in phase transition, we may state that spatio-temporal power laws occur, and that they are characterized by scale-free dynamics. It means that the same functional structure must be displayed at multiple levels of brain activity. In such a vein, we may hypothesize a system of nested nevels, or “russian dolls”, each one equipped with the same general scheme: from neurons, to cortical layers, to the whole brain.
P.S.: a very recent paper seens to share and confirm my idea:
Phase organization of network computations
