The Zen Nature of Fractal Art

I was thinking about Zen and fractals lately and came across this:
My theory is that enlightenment can be obtained through the introspective exploration of fractals. What can be truer than the fundamentals of mathematics? We know that we can add and multiply, subtract and divide for infinity and aren’t these the basic fundamental laws that hold reality as we know it together at the seams? We can see the principles of polarity at work in fractal mathematics, positives and negatives work together, not in opposition or conflict, but a united whole. Through studying fractals, we can better understand our state of existence in a physical world in which infinity can be explained and explored, yet exist just within the realms of our mental grasp.
Also of interest is this page of Buddhist Fractal Art.
