I argue that the contrary is true. I have no evidence that you did 
follow the argument. You are not enough clear that I can counter-argue 
here.

Which universe?

We have proved that such question cannot be answer in any systematic 
way.

What do you mean exactly by "physical reality"?. In this list such an 
expression is ambiguous. Are you talking about the observables which 
are emerging from the relation between numbers (if comp is true 
together with the reasoning I am trying to convey) or about some (non 
comp) materialist theory?
