intelligent program. If a program is perfectly optimized for minimum
variable name lengths with no comments and such, there is very little
chance that it takes exactly a gigabyte. There are probably a few bits
left over, and in most programming languages spaces can be inserted for
ease of reading without changing anything, so if you have a gigabyte
program which is intelligent we could insert a space in perhaps a billion
different places and the thing would still be self-aware and if so there
are a billion different configurations which could end us all. Or not.
