“Our preferences for fractals are set before our third birthdays, suggesting that our visual system is tuned to better process these patterns that are highly prevalent in nature.”

Interesting.

Thank you for sharing!

The closest I've came to fractals before viewing Orson Wang's \( 10^{275} \) Mandelbrot video for the first time, were mandalas. Of course, fractal-like patterns are present in mandalas. I lived in a world of Euclidean geometry, and then, as the years passed, I was submerged in the world of fractals, self-similar subsets of Euclidean space. But is the universe Euclidean? Let's recall that the universe may have a flat or zero curvature, which might be yet another subset of Euclidean space. By the way, did anyone made mandalas in their childhood?
