No. The concept doesn't enter consideration. What he considers is that
the Great Programmer has finite (or perhaps bounded resources), which
gives an additional boost to algorithms that run efficiently.
that愀 the problem that I insist, has a natural solution considering
the computational needs of living beings under natural selection,
without resorting to a everithing-theory of reality based of a UD
algorithm, like the Schmidhuber one.
My suspicion is that there does *not* exist a single global
computation of the behavior of living (or other) beings and that
"natural selection" is a local computation between each being and its
environment. We end up with a model where there are many computations
occurring concurrently and there is no single computation that can
dovetail all of them together such that a picture of the universe can be
considered as a single simulation running on a single computer except
for a very trivial case (where the total universe is in a bound state
and at maximum equilibrium).
