Fractal dimension of CMBR? Cluster distribution?

    I have read speculations that
    (1) the cosmic microwave background radiation has a fractal distribution (non-integral Hausdorff dimension), and
    (2) the same might be true of galaxy cluster distribution (although different dimensionality to (1))
    Whether or not one or both analyses are correct: even so, what difference would it make to the established laws of physics?

    You need to provide exact and valid references to each one of these. If they don't fall into the accepted https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=5374", then this discussion falls under our overly-speculative policy.
