Second, a reality can exist without being computed. the best and simple

But it's questionable whether it "exists".
Does it kick back? Could two beings in different universes, with different laws of
physics (if such exist) discover it independently?
Of course "discover" begs the question.
If so, it exists by any reasonable definition (including Stephen's)
Two beings with different laws of physics in different universes could invent the game of
rock, paper, scissors. Does that mean the game exists? Did it exist before they invented
it? Does the continuum exist?
