You could speculate that the experience of digging holes involves the dirt, the shovel, robot sensors and effectors, the power supply as well as the central processor, which would mean that virtual reality by playing with just the central processor is impossible. This is perhaps what Colin Hales has been arguing, and is contrary to computationalism.

Again, putting the environment, with some level of details, in the "generalized brain" is not contrary to comp. Only if you explicitly mention that the shovel, or the sensors, or the power supply, .... are not turing emulable, then that would be contrary to comp.
