Does it imply that we have an infinite number of levels between mind and physics?

You can say that.

Imagine yourself in front of the UD. By the invariance of the first person experience for the delays, you have to take into account all computations accessing to your 3-actual computational states (in comp).

This will include some computation made by some universal number (computer) u, but also the computation made by the universal number j when simulating u, and then those made by the universal number k simulating j simulating u, and so on ad infinitum. So there is an infinity of dream layers, or mind levels between mind and physics. Physics does not really relies on any particular computations a priori, but on *all* computations, as defined by the UD processing (or equivalently by the true sigma_1 sentences weighted by their proofs).

But that seems to invoke realizes, not just potential, infinities.

Only at the epistemological level to describe the domain of indeterminacy of the first person. It is the same as in analysis, except that here it concerns an internal epistemology of numbers, by numbers betting on comp.
