Why is it so ? I'd say at first glance that every configuration of matter is 
exemplified an infinity of time. Like I can see a video in 320x240, 640x480, 
1024x768, xxxxx, 100000x100000... each time it's the same "footage" but each 
version differ with the "accessible" information content of the scene. So for 
a specified level of information I could agree that there is only one 
configuration... but there should exists in a mathematical MW an infinity of

No, just that you can't conclude that unicorn don't exists only because you've 
never seen one... You could conclude with an high certainty that unicorn 
don't exist with more evidences... Have you such evidences ? beside that 
you've never met Harry Potter ? ;-D
