If the universe is truly a fractal, then it wouldd negate a need for a TOE, as everything can be described in simple terms. One of the articles stated
that it would falsify Einstein's relativity(which is necessary because we can't just "expand" the three standard forces to the macroworld), which
doesn't surprise me.
In order for it to be a fractal, however, then we must be able to analogize everything in the cosmos as parts of the atoms. Now the galaxies can be
thought as the electrons. The dark matter/energy can be thought of as the vacuum density energy(which is potential but latent energy, that exists as
long as there is space). The proton is said to be the black hole/singularity. But what about the neutron? Since we don't know what exactly the center
of the universe or a black hole actually looks like, we can't say. Also, there is actual space between the electrons and the nucleus. The current
model of the universe says that space only exists on the perimeter, and literally nothing or "hyperspace" exists between the center of the universe
and that space(if the theory about wormholes is true, then supposed that we were to shoot a particle through the space of an atom, then we should see
it "teleport" through the other side.)
IMO, there is a slight difference. And I believe this difference was made on purpose by the Creator, in order for us to come up with the equations for
string theory, and the concept of extra dimensions.
