O     O       yes. i agree.
O   O
O    O       hm.
O   O   O
O    O      let's try a thought experiment.
O  O O  O
O O         there is a universe which contains a large
O  O           machine. a factory. which produces self-aware
O    O O       robots. they are all identical, aside from their
O  O   O       serial number. it takes a year to make such a
O OO       robot. this universe exists for 100 years, in
OOO            which time 100 robots are produced.
OO  O
O   O O O      when the robots come alive - they are able to
O     OOO      reason about their serial number. a robot may
OOO   O
OO O O O        say "there is a 90% chance my serial number is
OO O O O O      greater than ten."
OO O O   O
O O O O  O      now consider a similar universe - but this one
O O   O  O      exists for 200 years. in it the robots can
OOO O O  O      reason similarly, and can say "there is a 95%
OOO O O  O      chance my serial number is greater than ten."
OO  O O  O
OO OO O  O      now consider a similar universe - one which
O O O O OO      lasts forever.
O  OO O OO
O  OO  OOO      by your argument - the robots cannot reason
OO OO  OO       about their serial numbers - because there are
OO OO  OOO      infinitely many robots, and there is no uniform
OO OO  OOO      distribution over them.
OO OOO  OO
OO OO  OOO      poppycock i say. although YES, I AGREE, THERE IS
OO OO OOO       NO UNIFORM DISTRIBUTION OVER AN INFINITE SET - i
OOOO OOOO      believe it is still possible for the robots to
O  OOOOOOO      reason about their serial numbers. but they need
OO OOO OOO      to use tricks, like the one i presented earlier.
O   OOOOOO
OOO  OOOOO      similarly, i think it is possible to reason
OOOOOO OOO      about the complexity of a uniformly chosen
OOO OO OOO      universe - and in doing so, i find that it's
OOOOOO OOO      complexity is extremely high.
