Thank you for this post! This was a must to get mentioned.
Notably, you are reading JP - with emphasis on "reading", because the action-laden (plus action-focused) movie did not even allude to this fractal thing one second.
If you haven't read the book, you won't EVER get a notion of Crichton's actual intention to write all this. It's just SO many miles away. Be this a hint to everyone reading this post.
The dialectics of JP (movie) to JP (book) may possibly be compared to the cuddly-cutesy product Disney made (or: "left") out of Rudyard Kipling's "Jungle Book".
