Blank Swans and Blank Strips

Yesterday, I have posted about the book The Blank Swan , Elie Ayache, author, and its challenging thoughts behind and read Jon Mc Loone's post Self Description , which also addressed muscles in my brain it has not had to use for a considerable period of time.
And then I thought, whether the continuous replication of derivative financial instruments that are blank before they get a price on a market  and FixedPoint iteration, starting from blank strips, to an amount of black in the image have "something" in common?
(no, it is just a gag - the underlying of the derivative is different from itself, so there is no self-reference; if the derivative is perfectly hedged by the underlying it becomes"redundant", but still have a price on a market :=) )
