Do you think that during the darkness of the universe that God was maybe a child whose brain hasn't developed entirely? And, as the years went on He started to learn, just like the humans ability to visualize more as they grow, and new neurons were formed?

Yep, except it's a metaphor for the formation of the flying spaghetti monster's noodley appendages. The meatball eyes formed a couple hundred million years thereafter, seeing as before that time the universe was still without light. We are all a part of the flying spaghetti monster, this is a fact.
God? That's just silly...

What if the Universe is just the brain of a bug.
And that bug lives in a ultra giant universe we cannot even comprehend.
And that ultra- universe is actually the brain of another creature, in an even greater macrocosm.
We could go up more levels, and we could go down into the microcosm this way as well. I bet.
So that would make the "true universe" an infinite double mirror reflection of countless universes within universes.
Hah I'll shush now.

A fractal is "a rough or fragmented geometric shape that can be split into parts, each of which is (at least approximately) a reduced-size copy of the whole," a property called self-similarity. Roots of mathematically rigorous treatment of fractals can be traced back to functions studied by Karl Weierstrass, Georg Cantor and Felix Hausdorff in studying functions that were analytic but not differentiable; however, the term fractal was coined by Benoît Mandelbrot in 1975 and was derived from the Latin fractus meaning "broken" or "fractured."
