### The Drake-Howard Equation

The Drake-Howard equation is:

whereN = R_{*}× f_{#}× n_{e}× f_{q}× d_{l}× f_{c}× L

*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*= The fraction of self-Gödelizing strings per regular language that matches at least one string_{e} -
*f*= The fraction of self-Gödelizing strings that are also functional quines_{q} -
*d*= The sum to infinity of the average measure of quine islands divided by Levenshtein distance_{l} -
*f*= The fraction of of all functional quines which can be realized by Standard Model matter_{c} -
*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.
