If platonism/AR is false, there has to be a real physical world,

Yes, obviously.  But I'm querying why Bruno says that this world "has
to" be different from what comp predicts, given that comp itself can
only be true absent such difference.  It seems self-contradictory to


I am saying that IF comp is true, then the laws of physics are derivable/emerging on the computations, in the limit defined by the first person indeterminacy. So, for someone who want comp false, it has to hope the 'observed physics' is different from the comp extracted physics.
