That is not even close to correct my friend...
Do the experiments and prove thy self wrong..to thy self.
A tree well lets start with a leaf..
That leaf has a "membrane" you see a nice shinny pretty world...awww thats cute;)
Open thy eyes my son.....
Look closer at the leaf.... What do you see? "Branches" with "Nodes" within branches of nodes.....
Yes I am sorry it's true...

Fractals, as interesting as they are, do not truly explain much. I understand the fundamentals of your argument but where I fail to see the relation is in that which changes constantly such as the human form. In the human form, we are constantly exchanging and interchanging data of various types. We need certain type of data to grow and change and need to expel others. But these bits of data do not describe say, consciousness. Here is a rather unorthodox example.
The ingestion of Tetrahydrocannibinol CAN alter the state of consciousness BUT can be supressed by the consciousness through various chemical reactions which occur in the mind. In other words, I can make myself sober with a thought. By the fractal theory, the THC would define me until it processed through my system completely. That is simply not true. I can choose to allow the effects or not.
A trap it may be but I have never been one to be wary. We are exchanging.. Ahem...
In that order...
But none of these define my consciousness or my existence. Only my physical form which, by your own words, is nothing more than a perception.
That is my point exactly. Information exchange does lend itself to the fractal ideal. What is it that makes me conscious? Am I only the sum of my experiences. If that is true then nothing can come from me other than a repetition of previous ideas strung together in a different sequence. Fractals limit everything to the culmination of current information. This doesn't describe such things as dreams for example. I have seen things in dreams that do not even closely resemble things I have experienced in a waking state. Creatures the likes of which I cannot even describe. ideas which have no root or form but simply are. And these form me as well. What is the fractal for belief or the fractal for bliss?
And so what is the fractal of your fractal? All things have a source but that which is defined by itself has no start or end.
I am certainly not calling you a nut job since I get that a lot myself and know that it is not true.
I am merely wondering how that single particle managed to mutate into so many functions and recombine into a single function called consciousness?
