No it's not a computation, it arises because at every step,

So could we agree that the idea that the universe is
defined/determined ab initio ("in the beginning") is refuted by this?
I don't know what you mean here... but in comp the universe per se
does not exist, it emerges from computations and is not an object by
itself (independent of computations).
My interest is philosophy so I am asking questions in an attempt to
learn about peoples ideas. Now I am learning about yours. Your sentence
here implies to me that only "objects" (considered as capable of being
separate and isolated from all others) can "exist". Only "objects" exist
and not, for example, processes. Is this correct?
