I'm looking at my feeds and I see astronomers have discovered (or finally recognised, we've known about them for years) there is a 'large' structure at the outer edges of the universe. 3 billion years wide, 'Giant Arc'. https://www.sciencetimes.com/.../could-this-3-billion... This blows apart the standard model of cosmology as for it galaxy distribution is smooth on all scales. But a few have challenged this view and said the universe is fractal - fractal-cosmology. I came into this from the outside, indirectly. The universe is recognised 'by science' as being fractal on small scales (out to around 1 billion years) but on large it is smooth and assumed not fractal. No. No, it is not smooth, and nor should it be. I have taken the fractal-cosmology further by modelling a fractal (doing the maths directly from a fractal, an experiment) and big structures like the Giant Arc are exactly what we would expect to see - like big branches on a tree near the trunk.
