You should try to make your model part of established mathematics.
Not for the glory, but for making it comprehensible.

Let us say.

Why not put the fridge in the bottle of milk?

Contain in which sense and why ?

If you give us a precise FAS, then give it to us. If you are defining
a collection of FAS, then give us an example.

It looks like your FAS is a self-delimiting UTM. Is that it?
