Fractals have always existed; they’ve existed for aeons. In the natural world, the
environment, our body, the Universe, and phenomena, fractals have existed unaware to us until recently. The word “fractal,” comes from the Latin verb, “frangere,” which means to "break into" or to "create irregular fragments." These are the geometric shapes that are very complex and infinitely detailed. Also, they are recursively defined and small sections of them are similar to larger ones. They are related to chaos because they are complex systems that have definite properties.
In the natural world, we see fractals everywhere. Much of the time, not realizing that what we look at, in nature, is actually structured the way we think it is structured. Fractals are real concepts that structure everything inside of us, around us, and beyond us. Fractals are ubiquitous; they are everywhere. The fractal concept can teach us about real world mathematical systems, which can then help us to understand how the world operates on a mathematical level. Before now, we may not have clearly understood enough about the fractal concept to recognize that most everything is made of fractals.
