Temporal recurrance requires a finite set of states, or an upper bound on the information contained with observer moments. In the sorts of plenitudes considered here, there is no such upper bound - OMs can contain aribitrarily large amounts of information.

If we we really did live in Jorge's library of Babel (which is finite), then indeed temporal recurrence will be a feature. However, if that were the case, we'd have an inexplicable number (the number of books in the library).
