As I posted earlier my issue with this is how does one know p is in P
unless one can compute p, i.e. check it?
While I allow for such computable universes to exist [type 1] so too will
non computable universes - those subject to true noise - exist [type
2]. Why? -> The Everything can not contain just type 1 or type 2 universes
since this is itself a selection i.e. information. Since the Everything
can not contain any selection then all universes must be subject to true
noise if any are. A way to resolve this apparent difficulty is a
bidirectional flow between the two types of universes. A proper dose of
true noise will convert type 2 into type 1 and the the need to eliminate
selection which is the dominant dynamic driver of the Everything - will of
necessity convert type 1 into type 2.
