Abstract. Under artificially controlled conditions, fungal colonies show a variety of shapes and textures, from symmetrical to fractal. Features of colonies exhibit purely mechanical nature of growth. One can recognize, seeing the colony textures, that the organizations are made up through the effects of their "innate capability" on existence originated from the "latent memory", which every entity contains.
