Hi all,

"Consider:
1. A robot with power turned off.
2. A robot with power on and doing his programmed dance.

Physically, they are 100% the same. No parts were added or removed."

Tehcnically, that's not true. In step #2 you're adding energy to the mechanical medium. Therefore, the two scenarios are not physically the same.

In Christ,
