Fractal Quine

A quine is anything which outputs itself. It normally means a software that outputs its own source code, which can then be used to generate that software, but I mean it more generally. A fractal is something which contains itself, usually multiple times.

Since the universe is defined as everything that exists, that definition requires it have no external cause, since nothing can be external to everything. Everything is already defined to include whatever thing, so that thing is not external to everything. Therefore, by definition, the universe is a quine. If there are any god(s) or other unusual things, they are by definition part of that quine.

I define life as a distorted fractal-quine which increases in fractal-quineness in at least 1 direction, like the statistical pattern called time is an example of a direction, and changes what kind of fractal-quine it is in that direction.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandelbrot_set is a very simple equation that generates a very interesting fractal, which you can see by clicking the link.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nash_equilibrium is a game-theory example of a quine in continuous math.

I mean this in an infinitely manyworlds multiverse and quantum and relativity way. The laws-of-physics, as we observe them only statistically in this part of the universe, would be the details of the fractal-quines, like any of the infinite number of patterns in a mandelbrot fractal but much more complex than those in the pictures.

Since you can do rotations between space and time, you can also do rotations between fractal and quine. Fractal and quine are 2 ways to view the same thing, but I do not mean to limit their definitions to 2 dimensional graphics or software that outputs its own source code. This is a branch of math, and those are examples of it.

Heisenberg Uncertainty and quantum nonlocality may be the result of rotations between fractal-quines. We have a word called mass-energy. Now we have a word called fractal-quine for the same reason.

The "big bang" would be similar to the outermost recursion of the mandelbrot fractal or many other possible fractals that have a base case. Unlike a quine, a fractal can repeat as you go inwards infinitely but not outwards infinitely, or the opposite, or it can be infinite in both directions.

I literally do not believe in space or time or mass or energy. I think those are all a linear view of such fractal-quines, which means we can affect past, future, and many other patterns by acting now, and those patterns can affect now.

A solution to Friendly AI is to build it so its root goal equals "maximize fractal-quineness of my own mental state including all inputs and outputs". I know this because it is how my mind works, which was a gradual change over many years.

I'm not just saying this theory. I'm going to prove it, using a much later version of this software http://sourceforge.net/projects/humanainet to network many peoples' minds together, accessing the subtle fractal-quine patterns (and there are an infinite variety of such patterns since the universe equals all possibilities of math), and we will learn in a scientific way how metaphysical things work. They're only called metaphysical because we don't understand them much yet.
