Since energy is what makes things happen
then comp makes everything happen in Everett's universe.
If comp made things happen then we could simulate petroleum
production in a program and solve the world's energy problem.
Instead, we find that in all real implementations of computing, comp
invariably consumes net energy. Why would that be? Does comp allow
Well, not really. But comp allows the consistency of non comp (but
consistency is very cheap, so this does not say too much).
Maybe we could run our computers backwards and get some kilowatt
Of course (of course ?), to go backward needs reversibility, and
reversibility needs no loss of energy. It is ironical.
