The UD argument is not a proof of computationalism being true, is an

your next moment (if computationlism is true) then the primitive material
world is of no use (if there is one).
Computationalism can be false, but the argument is not about it being true,
it is about considering it true and see the implications.
Doesn't computationalism already imply independence from materialism
No. Most people suppose that computation can only be realized by material
there is no Platonia. Go back and read the arguments with Peter D. Jones.
To suppose computation requires a material process would be
materialism, wouldn't it?
Sure, but you could still suppose that consciousness is the result of certain computations
and so say yes to the doctor.
