Bruno ran the UD on his computer a few years ago.  I don't know how many
programs and instructions it got through running though.

In any case, the there is a proof that there is a proof that the Nth state
of the UD has a particular definite value.

That's my point.  It doesn't matter if anyone computes it or not, its
computation exists already in mathematical truth.

The conscious programs make sense of their own environments in which they
arise.

There is isn't quite noise, it is more analogous to counting.

The anthropic principle chooses universes where conscious life can arise.
The same is true of the UD. Programs and environments in which
consciousness can arise is selected by those conscious entities.
