2.2.6 Characteristics - A Fractal is Common in Nature

Many objects show fractal structures and can be reproduced through fractal geometry such as the cluster of galaxies, the roots of trees, the crater landscape of the moon and plants.

It is a truism that most of the following analogies between fractal geometry and architecture or nature are not based on the pure definition of fractals given above, but in general they have similar characteristics. For better differentiation this second kind of fractals will be called “natural” or “general” ones in contrast to the “true” ones.
