Chaos, Fractals, Recursion, etc

Lately, I've been back in my mathematician mode and reading books of a mathematical nature. I've always been interested in making complex systems out of simple rules. So, the idea of making fractals by use of simple rules and recursion seems mystical to me. I've been thinking that it would be cool if we could do the same thing in computer science (particularily, multi-agent systems from what I've read). Well, I cam across this link with an interesting discussion on Emergnent Behavior that follows the same lines (simple rules, complex behavior). Check it out here. It's fun stuff to think about.
