If we were actually trying to build a diamond maximizer, we would be likely to encounter this problem long before it started formulating new physics\. The equivalent of a computational discovery that changes 'the most efficient way to represent diamonds' is likely to happen much earlier than a physical discovery that changes 'what underlying physical systems probably constitute a diamond'\.

It's not clear to me what point you are making here.
