That is you model and it is one dimensional [call it x] that is it has one
Now add a dimension call it y that is infinite and perpendicular to your
example's x. This is an infinite number of venues. Now randomly sample on
the xy plane. The area of the plane below zero on the x dimension is the
same as the area above zero on the x dimension i.e. infinite = no bias as
to sign mix of the resulting random sample of reals on x.

With this I disagree when describing the Everything because on its face it
attempts to extract information from an informationless source. Your
example from within a particular universe [intrinsic information] is not
applicable because here its any style you want.

What you seem to be saying re my approach using the above analysis of your
example is that the boundaries of the plane in the y dimension may
meander. With this I agree. Actually its essential. So what? The areas
above and below the x = 0 line are still equal.
