It does not prove that the physical world does not exist... it proves that a

physics of the world. Whether there is a primitive material world or not

devoid of explanatory power.
This reminds me of the GHZM quantum experiment which seems to suggest that a
pre-existing reality does not exist at least according to Lubos Motl. Is that anything
like what you mean?
It's not really that a primitive physical world would be devoid of explanatory power.
After all it is the implicit working assumption of almost all scientists. What it
primitively explains is that some things exist (are primitive and physical) and other
things don't. On this list, the working hypothesis is that 'everything' (in some sense)
exists and so there is no explantory function for primitive physics. The fact that it
seems impossible to explain qualia in terms of physics also argues against taking physics
