Galaxy map hints at fractal universe

Is the matter in the universe arranged in a fractal pattern? A new study of nearly a million galaxies suggests it is -- though there are no well-accepted theories to explain why that would be so.

I've always sensed that our universe is fundamentally fractal -- a notion that might ultimately lend itself to cosmological interpretation.

Could consciousness itself be, in some way, fractal? How might we go about testing such an idea?
