According to the theory of uncomputing, that requires an computer made of
anti-particles which are prevented from colliding with non-anti-matter
(lest both vanish in a puff of cosmic rays). Funnier things happen if you
rotate the Feynman diagram by only 90 degrees. All across the universe,
virtual pairs of computers and anti-computers materialise and
dematerialise. This violation of the Einstein's matter-energy law of
conservation is allowed by Heisenberg's time-energy law of uncertainty, as
long as those (anti)computers are very very short-lived. They are so
incredibly short-lived that they rarely have the time to perform more than
qrt(-1) operation before they auto-annihilate.
