Given a magical computer which can run any terminating program -no matter how complex- in seconds, what program would you run?
As a follow up question: what scientific ideas could we prove with this machine and with what program?
As an example: >run a program that simulates all quantum mechanical processes for an entire universe >run so many of these universes with different initial states >the program finishes when it has produced earth with intelligent lifeforms on it Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
