The gist of the ideas presented here was formulated while trying to bridge the gap between a simple physical conception of the world and the global philosophy of life of A. Manning. Some ideas about Energy Consumption and Coding were further developed in a group discussion with Sophie Heinrich, Maël Montevil, Arnaud Pocheville and Livio Riboli-Sasco, whom it is our pleasure to thank here.
