Then in another post you just say:
It's a bit hard for me to come up with a satisfactory answer to this
problem, because I don't start from the assumption of a physical universe
at all--like Bruno, I'm trying to start from a measure on observer-moments
and hope that somehow the appearance of a physical universe can be
recovered from the subjective probabilities experienced by observers
And this answers the question.
That was actually me who wrote that, not Hal Finney. But in reply to that

I have a similar perspective. However I think it will turn out that the
simplest mathematical description of an observer-moment will involve a Big
Bang. That is, describe a universe, describe natural laws, and let the
OM evolve. This is the foundation for saying that the universe is real.
