comment Could entropy explain dark energy?
The idea that light gets slower because of latency in a grid we live in doesn' t make any sense. Latency is ultimately caused by the speed of light, thus the reasoning is completely circular.

comment Is a hard drive heavier when it is full?
@DavidZaslavsky of course this is on the assumption that drives work by aligning zeros and ones correspondingly. Not so. Also, if the data is compressed or encrypted, it will have maximal entropy and thus contributions from orientations should/could cancel out.
