The Drake-Howard equation is:
N = R_{*} × f_{#}
× n_{e}
× f_{q}
× d_{l}
× f_{c}
× L
where N = the number of elder gods in the multiverse which might wish to consume our souls
and
- R_{*} = The number of regular languages
- f_{#} = The fraction of regular languages that match at least one string
- n_{e} = The fraction of self-Gödelizing strings per regular language that matches at least one string
- f_{q} = The fraction of self-Gödelizing strings that are also functional quines
- d_{l} = The sum to infinity of the average measure of quine islands divided by Levenshtein distance
- f_{c} = The fraction of of all functional quines which can be realized by Standard Model matter
- L = The time between Second Order Grand Conjunctions
As R_{*} is infinite (actually, א_{1}) and all
other values are nonzero, it follows that the number of soul-devouring elder
gods is infinite. The Drake-Howard Equation is also sometimes called Rule 110.
