Stathis Papaioannou ------------------------------------- So if I have a system with finite number of physical states, it will take a matching finite number of (base)-computations leaving an infinite number untreated. Out of them I can take a deduction for muiltiplying the finite number of physical states by the finite number of the base-states to get to the total number of computability on that system in parallel - still a finite number. I still have an infinite number of unbtreated cases left. Damn that infinite! Cantor's curse.
