Remember! you can use compression! You could compress the Earth quite easily
because there is so much redundant data and yes, you could possibly use
quantum switches or molecular circuits and memory. Imagine how many
terabytes that would require?

So? All we need is for the necessary laws of physics to be present and
anything beyond that is unnecessary. Like I'm sure dark matter has a direct
effect on our planet other than gravity pull.(sarcasm)
