The UD is deterministic. Part of Bruno's point is to explain apparent randomness without having to assume any. Any computational state reached by the UD is a "true theorem" of whichever program it is executing.

That depends on whether the UD is deterministic or not. If it is, then, its Nth state is a fact. (It doesn't need to be run or evaluated, and the Nth state may be a fact that nobody knows, like the googolth digit of pi, assuming no one's worked that out.)
