Using Fractals in Terms of Memory Palace

Is it possible for someone to visualize a fractal and use it as a mind palace? If they could, would they theoretically be able to have nearly infinite information in one palace due to the essence of fractals?

I suspect that repeated locations would be too similar to be memorable, but I don’t know for sure.

You could try using repeated images by creating a memory journey in a bookshelf. Make 16 locations in the bookshelf like this:

|----|----|----|----|
| 1  | 2  | 3  | 4  |
|----|----|----|----|
| 5  | 6  | 7  | 8  |
|----|----|----|----|
| 9  | 10 | 11 | 12 |
|----|----|----|----|
| 13 | 14 | 15 | 16 |
|----|----|----|----|

Then place a few hundred images in the bookshelf by cycling through the same locations repeatedly. I suspect that it would work better than rote memorization but worse than placing images in locations that look different.

(A bookshelf isn’t a fractal, but it might give an idea about whether locations that look too similar are memorable enough.)
