Is there any way that I could ever understand this?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julia_set

In the context of complex dynamics, a topic of mathematics, the Julia set and the Fatou set are two complementary sets (Julia 'laces' and Fatou 'dusts') defined from a function. Informally, the Fatou set of the function consists of values with the property that all nearby values behave similarly under repeated iteration of the function, and the Julia set consists of values such that an arbitrarily small perturbation can cause drastic changes in the sequence of iterated function values. Thus the behavior of the function on the Fatou set is 'regular', while on the Julia set its behavior is 'chaotic'.

I think its a graphical representation of a fourier transform root.....i think.

I remember barely talking about it in college, but that was 15+ years ago.

Awww, come on guys, it's so simple maybe you need a refresher course. It's all ball bearings nowadays. Now you prepare that Fetzer valve with some 3-in-1 oil and some gauze pads, and I'm gonna need 'bout ten quarts of anti-freeze, preferably Prestone. No, no make that Quaker State.

Sure, you could understand it.  You can understand most anything.  The question is "how badly do you want to?"  That will dictate how much effort you are willing to put into understanding it.

I used to believe that, but honestly not sure about this.
