Does Omega point theory allow for an eternally self-creating universe?

Assuming MWI is correct, and that Tipler's Omega point theory is correct
in that in at least some portion of the multiverse there will exist the
physical capacity for a computer to exist with infinite computing power,
even in the confines of a finite universe, does this then allow for an
eternally self-recreating universe with no outside explanation necessary?

Specifically, the question is whether the Omega point computer could
simulate the birth of a new, fully intact multiverse and run it through
to the creation of a new virtual omega point computer, that would then
continue the process in an endless cycle (or chain)? Does one computer
with infinite computing power (and only a millisecond to exist from an
objective viewpoint) allow for this infinite layer of creation? Does it
matter whether the multiverse itself is infinite or just very large?
