(1) Don't the following all violate the usual laws of physics?
(a) production takes place without constant fixed capital;
(b) constant fixed capital can last forever and not depreciate;
(c) workers "live on air."

(2) Do you want to explain why the above conform to the laws of physics or
would you like to re-phrase your proposal?
