I think that comp plus some finite limit on resources = Big Bang
The problem is that with comp, by the first person indeterminacy,
physics comes from the statistics on all computations, and below the
substitution levels, we have an a priori unbounded amount of
information, a bit like the infinities in the quantum field theories.
If the string theorists can get support for the explanation of the big
bang in term of branes collision, it might be a confirmation of comp.
Comp predicts an infinite past. But that infinity can play before the
big bang, but also, perhaps, after, like if time was infinitely
condensed in the first instant "after" the big-bang. The brane
collision seems to me to fit better. Well, the comp physics is still
in its embryonic state, so it is premature to really handle those
