I think fractals are a wonderful tool to understanding the self and the world. We mirror what is around us, and what is around us mirrors ourselves. The handles are many to help us move forward if we are able to look clearly.
The scale too, size, is an illusion. Tree branches fractal out, and so too our earth is also a molecule. Our body a constellation.
Paradox points to beautiful truths to open the mind from itself. To identify the patterns that recur to liberate our minds.
