Nothing that small could possess sufficient complexity to breach the Godelian limit beyond which self-reference may manifest. Your fractal-fairy micro-consciousness contention is equivalent to claiming that unicorns could be screwing watermelons under the surface of the moon, despite all the logical and scientific reasons to discount same, simply because you have not looked inside the moon to verify that they are not.
