I am open to direct proportionality, it is not yet proved, nor even
defined. With UD* the domains of uncertainty are at least (with n-steps
histories for any integers n) infinite countable. So you should tell me
what mean "direct proportionality" here.

Much more 'less' than 'more', IMO.

I don't see why. To explain the now-experience from the possible
inference of machines (or SAS) which are "reconstituted" sparsely in UD*,
you need to explain my now-belief in (at least apparence of) time space
energy without using these concepts. I never see a problem with the
of experiences over time, for time is a construct of atemporal possible
(consistent) experiences. The same for space, matter, and any
physicalist predicates. CF the 1-invariance assertions in UDA.

Perhaps I could understand if you were a little more explicit.
