That would contradict digital physics. But digital physics is self-
contradictory (indeed it implies comp which implies the falsity of
digital physics). Roughly speaking: if "I" am a machine, then
everything else is not.
IOW, any non-computational physical process.
Comp implies non-comp (non Turing emulable firs plural person)
physical processes. Indeed the "comp primitive matter" is not Turing
emulable, it is an infinite sum on infinite computations.
So to refute comp you need to find a non recoverable, by the first
person indeterminacy, physical processes. If there were evidences that
the wave function collapse, that might be considered as a refutation
of comp. But after a century of the collapse speculation, we can only
say that this evidences is meagre.
