Thesis summary: Evolution is a fractal  process, forming a branching pattern we call “tree of life”. Life has evolved exponentially (basically continuing today with technology and Moore’s Law) This perspective predicts that life is older than earth:

life is an emergent phenomenon of growing complexity.

as in (recursive)math there are the following types of solutions:

  • Zero or fixed numbers (see black holes, singularity)
  • going towards Infinity (the expanding sphere of the observable universe
  • oscillating between 2 or more states (rotation of galaxies, planets, cycles)
  • the fractal border – patterns growing in complexity, like the infinite border of the Mandelbrot-Set.

This last solution, the fractal border is the equivalent to Life!
