This is all that I am interested in. To me, it doesn't matter if there
is one universe, no universe, or multiple universes.

However, there has to be time. ;->

It's how my model works. The numbers are meaningless to another
interpretor, unless the whole set of numbers are available to
the translator.

Pretty much.

I don't find it a difficult issue to believe in reality. I also don't
find it a difficult issue for a machine to believe in reality. Beliefe
in anything in simply acceptance of some meaning at some level. It
doesn't mean that what is believe in is a universal truth (sorry
for the play on words), and in fact, it doesn't have to be.
