Q1. Is it possible to create mathematical models of reality? If so, AGI will solve the nuclear fusion problem, or perhaps any problem, like magic. Running some sim and building directly the solution, with possibly a really small number of trial errors — I'd imagine that atoms are not perfect and there must be some level of chaos in reality that cannot be fully replicated in a math model.

Q2. How much energy could require to run such a simulation? The main constrains of AGI will be energy consumption, no? According Wolfram, the universe is the result of a calculation w/o shortcuts, and if that's the case AGI have to run the calculation, either in reality or simulation.

With that in mind, AGI being godlike seems a stretch. To solve a problem AGI will need computation and energy, which cost money, but to gain money it could exploit the stock market with some manipulation, either direct or indirect; A potential scenario could look like the recent pandemic, in which AGI short the market and then cause the pathogen leak.
