Are we literally created in God's image?

What would that mean, for that to be 'literal'?

See, I think literally, we are created in God's image. I've always felt that way. However, "our image" is far more than the quarks whizzing around in the general vicinity of our bodies. When we get to what the image really looks like, we can see that we literally were created in God's image. It's just like a self-similar fractal or a set of blueprints. One could say that God is the blueprints and the physical universe is the edifice.

Yeah one of the reasons I very much enjoy reading and
discovering things of dna. As I have come to the conclusion
as well, that in the most smallest of microcosms, the smallest
of cells of anything in all of life, holds all the informations and
images of all else in all of existence in its entirety.

“Living backwards!” Alice repeated in great
astonishment. “I never heard of such a thing!”

memory works both ways.”
