(Note: I will let the question stand as is, it has generated a good answer, but the question is too "wishy washy" and needs to be tighter.)
We know that the uncertainty principle tells us that the product of the standard deviation of energy and the standard deviation in time must always be greater than h-bar. Since there is a unit element of action, is there a unit element of power as well? In other words, if action is always present, then must power always be positive?
Clarification: This is not intended to be a question related to people who think that there is "vacuum energy/zero point energy/free energy" that can be harvested. This is more along the lines of whether the universe can self-perpetuate.
Clarification 2: Self perpetuate I would define as the ability for the universe, through mechanisms of quantum fluctuations related to the uncertainty principle to produce another epoch similar to our own that would appear to be later in time, from our perspective, and after an apparent thermodynamic death of our current universe.
Question restatement: Is quantizing action analagous to there being a source of power at the quantum level?
