Anyway, I just had a browse to see what kinds of examples I could find of fractals present in nature and some of the images I found were unbelievable! Just check out some of the images below (click for full size). I find the images of rivers and streams are the closest in appearance to the Mandelbrot set, although some other patterns are also found, like the spiral shape of the tornado.

My intuition says that math existed first and matter aligns itself with the base rules of mathematics. 1+1 is 2 and I cannot conceive of anything that would change that fact but that doesn't mean it's true. Jewish Mysticism includes Gematria which is the study of numbers as they are associated to their alphabet. They go on to purport that God is the ultimate mathematician.
