The statement seems generally irrefutable.
1. It neither denies nor affirms the existence of other things than static patterns. 2. Patterns existing "non-independently" seems to be a way of saying they are "relative" (according to a wording you have used), that is, "recursive" (according to a wording I have used), without using either of those wordings.
Possible room for improvement:
> I take the term 'truth' to mean "conformity with fact or reality". > In most definitions, “reality” is pretty much defined as “that which > exists”.
I would have said: "I take the term 'reality' to mean "conformity with definition or observation. In most definitions, 'existence' is pretty much defined as 'being defined or observed'."
The concept of "truth" is peculiar in the sense that it is widely used in maths, logic and computer science (normative quality) and in religious or mystical context (subjective quality) but not so much in empirical science (objective quality).
> As such, I take static patterns of value to represent truths.
I would have said: "As such, I take static patterns of value to represent reality."
I have tried to think of synonyms for what you mean with "relativity" and what I mean with "recursion".
Words that apply to individual patterns:
non-independence (from you) codependence (possibly from CTMU) relativity*
Words that apply to all patterns as a whole:
self-referentiality self-determinism (from CTMU) self-assembly autogenesis recursion Buddhist relativism**
Words that apply to the formal theory that I find to underlie pattern construction:
dynamicality (a programming language metaphor) flexibility computability functionhood
* This would be the dictionary definition of the word. It is intuitive and simple to anyone who does not already associate it with something complicated, but unfortunately many do.
** Western relativism doesn't seem to have much to do with MOQ-related topics.
