We don't have too, even without comp, in the sense that, with AR
(Arithmetical Realism) we cannot not take into account the relative
reflexivity power of the number's themselves.

OK (but again the "symmetry-breaking" is a consequence (too be sure
there remains technical problems ...)

Yes. Perhaps, indeed.

Actually if COMP does not give the right physics, that would be
interesting too. In such a case we could use comp and experimental
physics to measure somehow the degree of non-computability, well not of
the physical world which is necessary not completely computable with
the comp hyp, but of our mind. But of course if comp leads directly to
the right physics, that would be nice, sure.
