Hacking the universe

Seth Lloyd, a professor of mechanical engineering at MIT, is among the pioneers of quantum computing: he proposed the first technologically feasible design for a quantum computer. If humans ever build a useful, general-purpose quantum computer, it will owe much to Lloyd. Earlier this year, he published a popular introduction to quantum theory and computing, titled Programming the Universe, which advanced the startling thesis that the universe is itself a quantum computer.

    Try a hyperfractal—-a fractal-to-fractal, electron/photon intrfaced wiring diagram. Pair-to-pair, serial-to-parallel, quantum-to-quantum, field-to-field—with NO disruptive clocks, transistors. Elimimate the artificial and emulate nature.
