Living structures are fractal

A fractal exhibits repeating patterns at different scales. What’s interesting is that fractal structures are found everywhere in nature. Examples of such structures are branching trees and blood vessels. Even the largest known structures in the Universe are fractal. The cosmic web, for instance, looks very much like a neural network. Maybe the whole Universe is (approximately) self-similar over all scale ranges?
