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.
