    Dear Bruno,

    I have to agree with Alberto on this point.

    AR does not restrict the types of physical laws of universes that it can 
    so barring a separate mechanism I cannot see how Alberto's claim is false!

I too made this claim recently. I assumed that an infinity of computations producing all possible experiences would include experiences of different physical laws (e.g. the speed of light 1 km/hr faster). Why wouldn't it? Does comp uniquely determine c?

I think the question is whether comp determines that the world is (locally) Lorentz invariant. If it is, then c is just a unit conversion factor between the + and - signature terms. It's value is arbitrary, like "how many feet in a mile", which is why it is now an exact number in SI units.
