The motto speaks at different levels. At one level, it expresses our identity. The motto says that we are Computer Scientists. Computing is what we do. Our professional reason for being is the theory and practice of Computing.
At a deeper level the motto asserts that "Being is Computing". Computing permeates the Universe and drives it: Every atom, every molecule, every cell, everything, everywhere, at every moment, is performing a computation. To be is to compute.
