The equations which should apply are:
        sum(everything) = 0
        sum(everything known by conscious subjects) = infinity
        sum(everything not known by conscious subjects) = 0

The first equation should be one of the axioms of a TOE.

The second equation is because for all distinct subjects A and B,
        (known by A) + (known by B) > (known by A)
since if this failed B would either not be self aware or be the same as A.

The third equation is not obviously true, but I suspect that if there is
anything interesting to be found it will be discovered by at least one
conscious subject. There is a lot of low quality information which an
infinite number of immortals will never get round to looking at, so it just
gets smudged out in the big picture.
