O O sure. i suspect we're talking past each other.
OO O let M be the set of universes. let A_i be a
O O O sequence of finite subsets of M, such that A_i
O O is a strict subset of A_(i+1). define e(i) be
O O O the expected complexity of a uniformly chosen
OOO member of A_i.
O O O
O O O then lim i->inf e(i) = inf.

OOO O O O yes - i think i understand what you're saying
OO O O O here. a universe with high complexity is a very
OOO O OO messy place indeed - computers disappear, etc.
O OOO O OO however, i think you'll agree, that our universe
O OO OOOO (unless it *is* using a pseudo-random number
OO O OOOO generator) is quite messy.
O OO O OOO
OOOO OOO i'm wondering if perhaps a different force is
OOOO OO OO keeping the complexity low. an anthropic force
OOOO OO OO - if complexity is too high, then life doesn't
OOO OOO OO evolve - and we don't see it.
