fractal.noun,.plural.fractals
a fractal is the same pattern repeating at different scales, a self similar pattern such as leaves, a fractal is a shape than can be divided into parts that are smaller versions of the whole, or expanded into larger similar configurations; a fractal is a geometric creation that has common attributes.irrespective of size, for example the spin created by water running out of a bathtub as compared to a larger hurricane's pattern and on up to giant galaxies spinning; a geometric pattern that is repeated at ever smaller scales to produce irregular shapes that cannot be represented by classical (Euclidean) geometry;."a fractal is a geometric shape that has intricate structures on all scales of magnification"....Ian Stewart, example; the term 'fractional dimension' used to describe how well a shape fills up space

Fractals model the irregularities of nature, representing finite-increment in a variable, such as clouds, mountains, shorelines, various landscapes, grasses, leaves, trees, floweres, ferns, etc., thus revealing the hidden regularities in nature.

Hundreds of thousands of calculations are necessary to produce a particular fractal design that fills a 17 inch computer screen. The various images that can be produced rely upon different mathematical formulas. The physics involved are enormous.

Compare in your mind the much larger and just as varied fractals in nature, and consider the mind behind it all. 

A characteristic of fractals is self similarity, example. And we have time fractals:
Fractal Time book by Gregg Braden
In this fascinating book, Gregg Braden merges the modern discoveries of nature's patterns (fractals) with the ancient view of a cyclic universe. The result is a powerful model of time—fractal time—and a realistic window into what we can expect for the mysterious year 2012 . . . and beyond. Your personal time codes for the key events of business, relationships and change in your life!

How each cycle carries a window of opportunity—a choice point—that allows us to select a new outcome for the returning pattern!

Gregg Braden is a New York Times best-selling author, a former Senior Computer Systems Designer for Martin Marietta Aerospace, Computer Geologist for Phillips Petroleum and the first Technical Operations Manager for Cisco Systems. For over 20 years he has searched the remote monasteries of Egypt, Peru and Tibet for the life giving secrets that were encoded in the language of our most cherished traditions. His work has led to such pioneering books as The God Code, The Divine Matrix, The Spontaneous Healing of Belief and his newest Fractal Time. Gregg's work is published in 17 languages and 27 countries and shows beyond any reasonable doubt that the key to our future lies in the wisdom of our past. 

See his video on YouTube, type 'gregg braden cancer healing', on how an oriental medicine technique cured bladder cancer in little over two minutes. You'll see on a split screen the cancer before the treatment in a fixed picture and the moving process of it shrinking until its gone.
