The distribution of Namibian fairy circles (red, yellow and blue bars) with four, five, six, seven, eight and nine neighbors (indicated by polygon class) is essentially the same as skin cells (black bar) – statistically indistinguishable. The patterns are so close, the researchers rechecked the data several times to ensure it was correct.
