in thread the secret of PI

This sounds like a variant on my patented Time Extensible Processor. The TEP projects your task far enough into the future so that it is done now. It has an interesting side effect, however. If the tasks ever stop running, it indicates the end of the universe. But because of how time and space work, you can simply pick up the machine and move it a few inches to the left or right to resume processing. At least, until that time/space thread ends.
