comment find searching in parent directories instead of subdirectories
@alexgray (../) alone doesn't mean much, but (../)# means try to expand the pattern inside the parenthesis 0 or more times, and only use the ones that actually exist on the filesystem. Because we're expanding from 0 to n parent directories, we effectively search upwards to the root of the file system (note: you probably want to add something after the pattern to make it meaningful, but for enlightenment execute print -l (../)#). And #zsh is an IRC channel, Faux is a username on it. Faux suggested the solution, therefore the credit.
