Exciting and impressive! Many of Arend's features sound very useful!
I find the universes most interesting, but I don't understand how exactly
they work. From your site, I learned:
* A universe in Arend has two parameters, for size and for homotopy level.
* Universes are cumulative in both parameters.
Is type-checking still decidable? Say, we have this judgment:
(1) A : \3-Type 1
(2) A : \4-Type 1
by cumulativity, but it shouldn't be decidable whether we also have
(3) A : \2-Type 1.
In book-HoTT, only (1) would type-check, since A would be a pair of a type
and a proof of its homotopy level (i.e. you can only get (2,3) by changing
the proof). But your site says these proofs don't need to be carried
around. Are they still somewhere hidden in the background?
