Information taxonomy

This is my attempt at a universal classification system - a work of taxonomy (iterative metaphysics). The categories are arranged from top to bottom, from least to greatest complexity; and left to right, from greatest to least complexity. Each category is an extension of the one before, and each subcategory is a direct subdivision of its category. This creates a tree structure, that appears to make sense. :)

I believe that these categories (or something like them) are a basic part of reality itself - the information structure of everything. Instead of science, applied science, art and culture simply being human achievements, I propose that they actually “achieved” us. Like the Mandelbrot set contains incomplete images of itself, so our brains are images of our universe.
