Where do instantaneous transfinites come from in Low 2-C?

Where does the uncountable snapshots come from to justify the transfinite level of Low 2-C?

Is it the standard assumption that a cosmology in fiction follows the theory of The Evolving Universe Block or The Block Universe?

Uncountable snapshots in terms of Low 2-C refers to the uncountably infinite slices of space-time from past, present, and future on a universe's timeline. Just like how a photo captures a moment in time, think of time as the photo and the universe as the contents of the picture. Logically a space-time continuum would be filled with uncountably infinite amounts of these snapshots as each miniscule and unmeasurable moment in time would be a snapshot.

No. Cosmologies in fiction are assumed to be like our universe in real life unless specified.

But to give a Low 2-C level to the Universe in real life, one of these two theories must be assumed to be true.

The IRL universe could follow the theory of presentism and therefore the space-time continuum would not contain instantaneous transfinites, but only one.

OP is moreso asking about the basis we use to conclude that a space-time continuum is equivalent to "uncountably infinite snapshots" of a 3-dimensional universe. Anyway, I agree that we likely use the model of eternalism as the standard assumption for our temporal dimension standards. By the end of the day, not everything within the tiering system necessarily accords 1:1 with real life physics, and eternalism is simply the most accurate model of space-time that can be incorporated into a system of "higher levels of infinity" while simultaneously lending respect to general relativity.
