Thanks for the link. Yet, it is unclear to me what is exactly
information and computation in this experiment. To be more precise, let
us take physicalism:
This is probably in what I believe right now, although as I have
described recently in "Two Mathematicians in a Bunker and Existence of
Pi" I see problems with mathematics under physicalism.
We could repeat the same experiment with two computer scientists in a
bunker that discuss information and computation. The question is what
happens under the physicalism hypothesis with information and
computation in the bunker. Do we have information and computation in the
bunker when two computer scientists are still alive? Do we have
information and computation there when they are dead?

computation has thermodynamic constraints.
