Marching beat-by-beat into a Purposeless infinite horizon
Stunning. There are elements here I want to deploy for my book about MAINTENANCE and for The Long Now Foundation.
I wonder if you can map such infinite, yet constrained narratives to tiling, like Penrose tiling or the Einstein tile. The "protocol bible" is (rather rigidly) encoded in the shape of the tile. Not sure if you can actually compress such a tiling. this paper suggests to me that not really: https://arxiv.org/pdf/cs/0107008.pdf
Your conclusion sounds like the opposite of Viktor Frankls conclusions in Man's search for meaning. Why do you think that is?
