Hi Hal,

To see if your system is a UD, the first thing to do should consist in  
writing a program capable of simulating it on a computer, and then to  
see for which value of some parameters (on which it is supposed to  
dovetail) it simulates a universal Turing machine.
To simulate it on a computer would help you (and us) to interpret the  
words that you are using in the description of your system.
