I understand the basic concept around fractals and how they function as mathematical equations. Bear in mind I don’t know the actual nitty gritty behind the equations of these two fractals but I understand why fractals work on a shallow level. A lot of explanations I see behind fractals use the triangle and fern as two well known examples. Why these two? Is there something significant behind these two shapes when it comes to fractals? Does the existence of these fractals imply something that pertains to the real world or is it just a cool little numbers trick to show off on paper or a computer?
