Evolution is a principle in biology, whereby organisms evolve their ability to replicate and multiply in numbers over successive generations. From a computational point of view, the organisms employ a common programming (DNA, RNA, etc.) and runtime environment (cell biology). This evolution has eventually evolved a more powerful ((in a restricted sense) computational environment, the hierarchy of biological brains, with the currently most powerful class instance being the human brain. A collection of human brains is now working on evolving a quantum computer. Perhaps one day the the quantum computers will produce a....
From an anthropic point of view, we are here to think about these things, because our universe creates environments such as our planet earth, which support the evolution of life.
So my question is whether there is a general physical and computational principle at work here, demonstrated by the following incomplete, in parts almost surely incorrect, and highly speculative hierarchical chain of evolution:
Within the Multiverse, universes are instantiated following particular physical laws originated and adapted from their embedding universe
Each instantiated embedded universe follows computational rules (the particular physical laws of this universe) and create a finite number of embedded universes (the only candidate seems to be for singularities of black holes to correspond with a white-hole, inflationary, embedded universe), each of which evolve in the same general manner
Each universe produces a finite number of computational schemes to build organisms that follow certain classes of program patters. These organism evolve according to the theory of biological evolution.
Biological organisms evolve biological brains, a higher class computational scheme
biological brains build computational devices, which at some point attain the property of replication
The replicating computational devices build higher classes of computational devices, following the general principle of evolution...
