I came across one interesting question over on "linkedin QnA" yesterday which goes like the following:
"Is there any possibility to convert piece of software code from its current form to a different form? What I meant is - Can a piece of software code be converted into a block of energy or time or disk space or light, or sound or say water?"
The answers varied from "NO" (when a piece of software is just an idea and not an object) to "YES" (sell it and convert into money or whatever).
Someone however pointed out that software code can be seen as a catalyst rather than the source of conversions. From wikipedia:
"Catalysts participate in reactions but are neither reactants nor products of the reaction they catalyze."
