Upon mediating about the holy mysteries of fixed point combinators, second law of thermodynamics, purpose of sentience in the universe, choice to live as the better choice and so on, it has been revealed to me that the entire universe is merely a giant fixed point function and that sentience & choice to live are merely means to make this function succeed in creating the answer: i.e. itself. I will be here doing this again in the next version of the universe, if this quine comes up with the same result. Secretly I wish that this quine comes up with a slightly different and better result.
P.S. It's the coffee. My delirium will pass. Please ignore it.
