Let's put that body through a blender set to "plasma" setting. Now where
it the process "Mike Deering"? Where is that information, for that matter?
Can you point me towards literature that indicate that information is
being conserved? (Entropy is measure of information in a system).
Assuming, the laws of the universe *are* reversible and information *is*
getting conserved, how can I read this from your lightcone and reverse the
time flow to reconstruct the Mike Deering system? (Nevermind the inflation
event horizonts).
