What remains to be explained here is how you attach the first person 
indeterminacy, (which is relative to any member of the class of the 
third person describable states occuring anywhere in the universal 
deployment) and the measure coming from your Universal Distribution.
Given that a first person cannot be aware of any delays of 
"reconstitution" of himself in the deployment, it seems to me you need 
to provide more motivation for your distribution (which is also based 
on comp). How to avoid the inescapable redundancy of states and 
histories generated by the UD, and the fact that the delay-invariance 
indeterminacy forces us to take into account all finite portion of the
