Fractal reality is, according to those who believe in it, a trait of the multiverse, explaining how reality, while generally coherent and plausible from any given viewpoint or timeline, is macroscopically self-conflicting and fractured (hence, fractal). Things happen that simply can not, such as nations of millions of people suddenly appearing and disappearing, neither one with any trace as to where they came from or where they left to; IGNORE events and RetCons directly break coherent lines of causality that cannot be explained rationally by the standard rules of reality.

Fractal reality theory is a major factor in explaining events such as The Break and things such as fluid time. Still, some take it as a matter of faith while others take it as a matter of science, while yet others do not believe in it at all.
