        AM> If the generated universe is somehow specified by the output bit
        then it cannot be the same as the program and TM (combined if you
        which in turn must operate in some dimension analogous to what we
think of
        as time (for a step-by-step computation to take place). It seems
        to use the term 'universe' for this realm (as Schmidhuber does), but
in any
case it requires an explanation just as ours does.

the program on a computer outside that set to generate a graphic
representation of oit on a computer screen.
