Consider the impossibility of starting from nothing. If that is impossible, how can adding inductive bias (such as Occam’s Razor) eliminate bias? It induces more bias. But if it is the bias you want, then it moves towards a more well regulated system.

It is, but I think an inherent flaw in reasoning is that there is a reachable pure state.

Consider: “In an empty universe…” which is the start of thought experiments and logic.
