Do you mean "nonexistence"? AR, AFAIK, assumes a frozen static realm...
Literally nothing happens there.

He assumes all possible indices exist via the UD* (right?)

To the contrary! Bruno seems to eschew the very idea of Becoming!

I will write it again. Block Universes are an incoherent idea. It only
seems to work because we imagine tem as existing out there and subject to
our inspection from the outside. As if we are God or something... This very
idea is the problem, there is no God's eye view that can map faithfully to
any 1p view we might have.
