Let us try to be "very precise", then. I propose you the iterated
self-duplication experience.

Assuming computationalism, we survive. (I guess you agree).

Here is the question. Do you expect the (infinite) sequence in {W,M}*
appearing on your t-shirt to be

                    computable or uncomputable ?

In case you want to restrict to the finite sequences appearing at each
I propose then we stop the experience after 1000 steps. In that experience
do you expect the sequence of W and M (lenght = 1000) to be

                   compressible or not compressible ?
