an if in immanence?

the sequence of if a – t – 1, from the 1 11 111 t + – a aa aaa materials/code
the IF, in my view is how from a mere code, it can ask whether or not its alive. If allows to link with other operations such as replication, death, elements, negotiation, consideration, etc..
This is done via the self reference question that is constant:
If am X sequence how it will be as If X Y sequence etc.

Now suppose I am an If X sequence that became X Y-
Say I replicated to another If X Y
because of the IF we have, the replication might fold back to
If X when the Y was perhaps added too arbitrarily, yes?

However, when the new IF X Y sequence becomes linkable/replicable Without the need to fold into
If X
ie the if X Y become a sequence that need not reffer to a former evolutionary/developmental self in order to Be – then we have a new sequence that is immanent rather than referential.
