Thank you! "In principle, the state of the counters before their destruction inevitably leaves some traces in the environment because the information is preserved" Is it also true that the traces you mentioned can always be detected (in principle) from outside without opening the box, too?

comment Why do books have dog ears?
@LuboŇ°Motl: I had thought that we curl the edges mostly in one direction (towards the previous pages) as we read the book page by page, so the twist is not random, in which case we should not observe outward curling of pages towards the end of the book.

But a book that's not used will have none of those dog ears at all, although it too absorbs moisture as the used ones.

This is inconsistent with the fact that they always curl in different directions for the front pages of the book and for the back pages of the book.

I don't think they have anything to do with turning the page by its corner, because all four corners have them, although perhaps this habit will exacerbate existing ones on the lower front corner (but then again, are there really people who turn pages by using the corners?).
