I think the argument goes that the trace of the UD exists in arithmetic, along with all other computations, and indeed everything else (infinity is a big place, I guess...!) The hard bit is understanding how one state of UD* can "know" that it is part of a computation when it's just "there" (a bit like a slice thru a block universe, perhaps). Perhaps this involves something like Fred Hoyle's pigeon hole idea from "October the first is too late" - a fab book, by the way, as I imagine everyone here already knows. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Everything List" group.
