How truly fractal is hyperspace really? Our computers certainly generate fractal images that are mathematically and genuinely fractal. The things that I see in hyperspace do not reflect the symmetrical computer generated images with which we are all familiar. The geometrical patterns are certainly fractal-like, but IME I feel that many of the things I see are referential, and standalone (zoom in/zoom out, and you won't find the same pattern over and over again). I think that "fractal philosophies" will tend to serve one well in hyperspace, but I wouldn't be so quick to assume that hyperspace is mathematically fractal. The patterns and geometries can be heavily mathematical in advanced ways: geometries that form interlocking tessilations, geometric multidimensionality, etc...If I'm looking to form an accurate representation of hyperspace through the computer, the primary goal would be working artistically with multidimensionality, not fractals.
