Do you think, that the (Beckenstein's limit) maximal
amount of information, inside a closed area, has the
same status, as the "apparent moving of the stars on
the sky"? Are you suggesting, that the modern physics
is nothing more, than the intuition of the ancients?

Here you go again. Against the straw man.

Show me those calculations! Flight is possible, be
cause any such calculation is either wrong, either
doesn't exit at all.

Straw man again.

Now, what I do say is this: Any closed area around a
planet or a solar system is quite rapidly optimized to
a maximal computation level. I say that -- if the
Beckenstein is right -- we don't have an infinite
computation field inside a drop of water. It _is_ huge,
but not infinite.

Therefore, any Singularity must go outward for new
computing opportunities. NOT inward.
