The GIF above is an animation of a fractal tree, one of the simplest fractals! (simple meaning you can actually draw it without computer aid)

The basis of a fractal is a pattern repeating itself. Sometimes looking exactly the same no matter how close you zoom in on a chosen area. The most popular example of this being the Mandelbrot Fractal. (look up a video of the fractal, you can stare at it for hours — it’ll still be the same)

"Beautiful, damn hard, increasingly useful, thats fractals." - Pierre Mandelbrot
