You're reeeeally confused here. I don't suggest your list-universes
are inconsistent; quite the opposite.

I thought you brought up the list-universe example as if to say "if we
look at any universe as a list of states, then how can it be
inconsistent". To which I responded with "that's not a good example
because most universes can't be discretised to a simple list of
states". In other words, I can't come up with an simple example of an
inconsistent list-of-states-universe, but that doesn't mean all
universes are consistent, because most universes aren't like your
simplified example.
