Is that like the plane that crashed over the mountain? Where did they
bury the survivors?

The physics of life on planets is a bit out of scope.. and all been
done before.

The question is: if Earth made a blueprint of all logical knowledge,
derived in some type of systematic fashion, and it was 123KB ASCII
text file.

Then we found a remnant from an alien ship on Mars say, and it
contained a 123KB file.

Now say, a universal decryption algorithm of much less than 123KB, say
5KB translates 1 file to the other.

That would suggest the 123KB Platonic Facts are more real than what
Curt can conjure up with his grey matter!
