But in that line of discussion, the question should be: can primary
matter have processes. You said yourself that primary matter is
propertyless. How something without property can implement processes,
with or without qualia?

I begin to think that your primary matter is even incompatible with

Comp justifies the belief of a more primary matter than the one
allowed, at first sight, by current physics, given that matter, with
comp is an a priori complete indeterminate mess of infinities of
computations. It is not something describable by its parts, like
naturalist Aristotelian substances. But it is the bearer of
potentialities, and this defines the subjectively "stable" first
person. Your notion of matter could be closer to the comp-matter, than
physicists' notion, except it is not primary or fundamental. But it
certainly *looks* primary from the observer's point of view.
