Abstract: The aim of this article is to study how the "Zipf law" seems to govern all naturally evolved self-similar systems, how the fractal dimension explains power laws, and how such qualitative studies can be utilized in artificial systems. The idea is to present some general, higher-level laws governing complex systems. Self-similarity, fractal dimension, and power law are the key words of this article.
