I do not get Minkowskian spacetime either with my approach - it is
definitely an add-in, as it is with Frieden's work and Stenger's work.

I suspect (dimly) that it can be related back to the observer by
asking about topological effects on the network structure of universal
Turing machines. Nobody has done any stuff on this, that I can make
out. But if true, then at least with COMP you can get a necessary, or
perhaps only likely requirement for Minkowskian space-time.

Cheers
