Somewhere at the book, Professor Quirrell(who turn to be...) said that Voldemort found the Chamber of secret. Then he ask Harry why did Salazar created the basilisk(instead of just write whatever he wanted), and the answer was the interdict of Merlin. So I guess he learned it from there.
But Harry don’t believe in that, so he still was should ask if the chicken was completely normal except it was magical, not?
That’s maybe possible, but:
I don’t think that Dumbledore is someone who think that set fire to “stupid chicken” is ethic
(I might disagree with him, but I think that its not the style of Dumbledore).
Harry probably think thats its not how Dumbledore think/how magic works, so when he was told that its was “fake chicken” he was should saying something like: “But was it a normal chicken?” or “Does magic allow it?”.
Got it. Thanks!
Well, its not possible today, but why hypothetical its impossible? If the system is float in the vacuum heat wont go out. Then the only problem is to transform the heat to energy again, and it might be possible someday, I guess.
The “end of the universe” can happen in some ways. One of them is the “big freeze”—the galaxies may go far from each other, the starts may die, and so on. In that way, there is no reason why the AI can’t “live forever”—it might be a big computer float in the space, far away from anything, and it will be close system so the energy won’t run away.
