But the calculations are not being done here, massive perhaps even infinite
calculations might be much easier to do in another very different universe.

True past? For a simulation?

Classical complexity perhaps but Heisenburg uncertainty like any law of physics
can be changed by the simulation operator just by modifying a few lines of code.
