Yes it does. It suggests
a) every mathematical description is equally real.
Since
b) there is a mathematical description of the HP universe (as in a
video
game)
it follows that
c)  the HP universe is a real as any other, according to MM.

Likewise, a counterpart of "me" must be in the HP universe because
every union and intersection of any two sets is as real as any other.
(or every any two bitstrings can be cut and pasted to make an equally
real bistring).

You are sneaking physics in by the back door! There is nothing
purely mathematical to keep "worlds" separate. Their unions and
intersections
must be equally real!

No, I am not *spatially** inside a universe, becaue space is physics,.
not maths ! The number 2 that features in the set {1,2,3} is exactly
the same as the number 2 in the set {2,3,4}. It has no way of knowing
which
set it is in! Mathematical sets are **not** spatial regions! You are
thinking
about maths in a physical way, not in a mathematical way!
