Finite states

Two random thoughts I had while pondering state machines...

1/ I found this: Analog solutions to hard computational problems..
Spaghetti sorter - Cut n pieces of spaghetti in proportional lengths, bang them against the table. Here.

Which made me think of the complicators gloves.

2/If the universe only contains a finite number of bits (10^90 here and here) can it ever contain an infinite state machine?.

On the other hand the Large Hadron Collider might find something new.
