By setting a specific set of rules for life, along with our universes' current Standard Model of Physics. It could be possible to start the game of life by itself.
- The playing board would be general relativity and/or spacetime of cell.
- Dimensions would represent levels.
- Game moves would be represented by quantum particles appearing and disappearing out of existence as the arrow of time progresses.
- Players could be represented by God, and/or by consciousness (information).
As time progresses life is created as well as the "Players". This could explain our exponential growth of our forever expanding universe.
