In my last post when I said:

The initial state of a universe is not computable - it just was.

I was trying to indicate that any proposed history has at least one non
computable segment - that segment which is the description of the initial
state. The question is not about the computability of the complete string
but the computability of its latter segments taken as being the history of
a particular universe.

It seems to me that the latter segments must be computable both from the
first segment and the current segment or you could not show a unique
association of the string with a particular universe as its history.
