Maybe this is cheating?   I think I saw a Dresden Codak comic entitled "Dungeons and Discourse" a while back, but I just found their "Advanced Dungeons and Discourse".  And double-cheating, because I only found it hilarious due to knowing all the references.

Except!  I did not know what Laplace's demon was!  It is a theoretical intellect that can know everything about every piece of matter in the universe, and thus knows the future and the past by simple extrapolation from mechanical laws (Newton's laws originally, but it works with gravity and stuff too, so.)  Dresden Codak also has a comic specifically about Laplace's Demon but I didn't like it as much.
