Hi all,

Yesterday I was reading on fractals (2 dimensional). It was interesting to know leaves etc are examples of fractals ( for example : fern). So I thought if there is a possibility for 3 dimensional fractal. And as in any case which is distorted by noise (so that the fractal is not perfect, not 100% symmetric). Can we apply this model for ever growing , ever expanding universe? Can the iterations in fractal be thought of expansion of universe.

When I googled 'Is universe a 3D FRACTAL' I got a link http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn14200-galaxy-map-hints-at-fractal-universe.html suggesting similar idea. I would like to hear your opinions.
