This, I think, would directly contradict computationalism (unless you mean pseudo-random, or the randomness recoverable by the comp indeterminacy). By definition of "correct level" you keep both of them "intact" through a single turing emulation in your local "physical" reality.

If you rely on the thermal interaction with the environment, then you save comp at the expense of enlarging the local reality to be simulated.
