Tree points here, or, maybe, three non-senses (in this case I apolozige). A) Is there a principle of conservation of energy in MWI? I do not think so. Does it mean that - in principle - you could have a world in which there is "omnipotence" or a very large amount of energy? B) Which is the role of observers in that "info-universal-computation"? Do they cooperate? Is such a computation a "participatory" computation (in the sense of Wheeler)? Possibility of delayed choices, anthropic "functionals", Banah-Tarski weirdness, and other amenities ... like http://www.arxiv.org/abs/quant-ph/0109022 C) According to Spreng the parameters are three: energy, time, existing information. Thus you can minimize energy by using more time and more information. s.
