If pantheism means belief in the unity and divinity of the whole infinite natural universe itself, then fractals might be suitable as the visual representation for such belief.Any graphical rendering of a fractal pattern is necessarily incomplete because otherwise it must either continue forever outside the frame or have infinitely minuscule details. This is analogous to how we finite beings with finite perception in infinite (= larger than anything you can measure) universe can only interact with finite, observable part of it.Also, though not all, some fractals can be generated by simple, definite rules. This seems to correspond to the underlying unity of the universe despite its apparent complexity and internal diversity.Moreover, fractals can be observed in every part of the universe at various scales. Therefore, they can serve as the truly general depiction of the components of the universe.These features are, by definition, essential, integral properties of the fractals, not dependent of anything else except their very own concept. This could represent the pantheistic notion that universe itself is divine and nothing else is necessary.While this could differ from person to person, it would help that fractals often look beautiful to the eye.What do you think? Could Koch snowflake or Mandelbrot set be put on the flag of pantheists someday?See More
