My model taps the inconsistency of a complete
collection of information to give the dynamic of
its universe state to state succession at least
some random content. There is no conflict in my
approach with talking white rabbits or uncommonly
evolving keyboards. What I indicated is that all
I needed to encompass our world in a UD metaphor
of a sub set of my model was a compatible ongoing
intersection of a set [an infinite set most likely] of UD traces.

The picture is a set of say twenty traces all
arriving at twenty "Our World" compatible
successive states simultaneously. If the traces
assign a compatible degree of hyper existence to
their respective states then the result is twenty
immediately successive states with a rising then
falling degree of Hyper existence. The
intersecting traces are not even necessarily
logically related just compatibly coincident for
one of "Our World's" "ticks" so to speak. At the
next "tick" of our world a completely different
set of twenty traces can be involved. "Our
World" can be precisely as random as it needs to be.

Given an uncountably infinite number of objects
generated from a countably infinite list of
properties and an uncountably infinite number of
UD's in the metaphor I can not see an issue with
this re my model. As I said above "Our World"
can be as precisely as random as it needs to be.
