I see no reason at this point to consider the evolution of a universe as

ever being a complex algorithmic computational exercise.

Using a different way of trying to explain my approach:

In my approach the evolution is similar to a matching exercise between the

possible next states of a universe as represented by finite bit strings and

the current set of an endless series of randomly selected infinite bit

strings presented by the underlying informationless system. The members of

the set of currently presented infinite strings is in constant random flux.

If a section of any of the current set of infinite bit strings presented by

the system has a sub string that matches one of the possible next state bit

strings of a universe then that universe has a next state. If not that

universe is extinguished. Sort of a survival of the fit. To survive for

many state transitions a universe has to allow the input of new information

as true noise.

The matching exercise is like a cellular automaton with true

noise. Properly implemented cellular automata do their computation

locally with just a few steps. Actually the "computation" in my approach

is just working a lookup table. The evolution of a universe would always

be as if run on an immense parallel computer of just the right

configuration so as to precisely accommodate the current state of a

universe plus noise.

The new match would have to be made before the infinite string supporting

the current match for that universe vanished from the set of presented

strings. The arrangement of parallel table lookups in local cells and

limited duration of the match search causes successful evolving universes

to have at least a minimum amount of allowance for the input of true noise.
