Going Bananas!

I am speechless! Never have I seen a banana behaving this way all my life! My goodness, what is happening here?! No longer behaving like a thyrse, the lateral branches of the inflorescence have developed into mini indeterminate terminal buds too. In another word, they no longer are hands and fingers! Though, there seem to be some sparse but 'normal' formation of fingers at the very base (nearest the main peduncle) of the inflorescence. Is the ultra multi-branching phenomenon a result of meristem disruption? I am going bananas and tearing my hair to know! See photos below:
