I agree that extra bits in the "program" would tend to appear as noise
rather than some miracle like a fire breathing dragon. Is it then
assumed that the magnitude of this noise is unlikely to be seen - even
in a delicate physics experiment because tampering is so improbable, or
is it in fact measurable, arising in the form of QM uncertainty?
