I have the following question regarding Juergen's paper:

In the very first sentence of the abstract it is assumed that universes
have histories. If by this it is meant that a particular universe has a
particular unique identifiable history does this not mean that that
universe is computable? How would one associate a universe with its
history unless you could check it backwards to the initial state and then
forwards to the current state? Would that not require a
computation? Would it not require the lack of even a pseudorandom noise
content to the rules of evolution for that universe?
