Hi Craig,

No. A computation is by definition not abstracting novelty. Novelty is the essence of not-computable. The Halting theorem is an illustration of this. Computations are about repetition and sequence and perhaps symmetry, yes, but repetition and sequencing of physical states is what memory is all about, without the invariance over time there is nothing to define a repetition on.

Onward!
