That is a quite astonishing definition, which makes sense for the digital machine (which can be seen as relative natural numbers, which I agree might not make sense in Nature. This is a quasi theorem in the Digital Mechanist Theory, as nature is “only” an appearance emerging from a relative statistics on all computations. Nature, in that frame is how the numbers see the numbers, and they cannot observe them, just a not entirely computable emerging pattern. In that setting, physics is no more a science studying an ontological reality, but a relative appearance brought by a statistics on all machine’s experience (and this is confirmed by quantum mechanics without wave packet reduction, like in Everett theory. This makes physics into a branch of digital information theory/computer science.
