We can go even further than that, IIRC all physical states of
this universe fit into a roughly 2^1000 finite state-space, so
every computing problem in this universe is O(2^1000), i.e.
every computing problem we can ever work on is O(1).

Really, I think Andrea is missing the big picture here.

Thanks,

Ingo
