Quantum Computing for Stoners part 3
Speaker 1:Hey, let's give this a try. Okay, you want to talk a little bit more theory. Let's talk about how it works. It plays best to imagine how quantum signaling theory works. Why do I call it quantum signaling theory? Because in fact we're talking quantum fields the way language is today. Talking about particles is confusing. The reality of the situation like talking about a bit. People think a bit is a one or a zero or a rock or no rock. It's not. It's a hover down of a square wave, a signal.
Speaker 1:Quantum can be used the same. Go to the beach, look over the sands at the waves, how they come in and out. How they move. They never stop, never cease. Everything about our universe is like that wave of water, each layer upon each layer upon each layer upon each layer. In the fractal universe, ask Susskind about this. He'll tell you that every information surface on the planet has a fractal property. It has to because the universe conserves energy. Look at those waves again and think about things smaller and smaller and smaller. We're getting smaller. First we start at the planetary scale and then we see the water moving in big waves and small waves. Finally they get smaller and smaller as you look at each molecule. Zoom in farther.
Speaker 1:Each molecule interacting with charges and electrons, locking and dances of solitude. With stable molecules like water and oxygen and nitrogen. These bonds are strong. But farther down you will find the 16 primary elements that make up every fucking thing in this universe. Some of them have matter others are just pure energy, like love. Into everything that may be the universe is made out of love because it is made out of pure energy. Pure energy. Looking at it that way at the beach. Now try and measure every single angle on each wave going in every direction. Now you're getting back at the large ordinal numbers. Really big numbers, but the math is the same because the shifting of different set of numbers from one of numbers from one to the next is not that big. Even though you have a shit load of numbers.
Speaker 1:You use a stacking algorithm called a Fourier transformation. A Fourier transformation, named after an amazing mathematician I read once. I have no fucking clue what he wrote but it was pretty cool. But you do this all the time. Take some dimes, nickels, quarters or (foreign language). You can just take a pile of coins. [inaudible 00:05:23].
Speaker 1:Sorry about that, the electronics on my computer got infused and I had a memory leak. My processors was running, running, running, running trying to catch up. Creating all kinds of [inaudible] interference.
Speaker 1:Okay, let's talk about Fourier transformations. If you two waves or you take two piles of money and subtract them from each other you're starting to get the idea. Well guess what? The whole fucking universe does that. We didn't ever do it because we grew up with fingers and legs and digits and ones and fives and rocks and bits and paper clips. Remember Clippy? I'm talking about building another fucking Clippy from Microsoft. I'm talking about the next internet.
Speaker 1:Think of all the faces on the planet. Each one can be compared to the next and you can see the differences are slight. You go and judge people by the color of their face. You judge people by the color of their skin. You're just talking about a fucking rounding error in the mathematical sense. Seriously? You'll even see that racism doesn't apply. To make this work we have to understand the math of the universe. You don't have to understand it. You just have to be nice.
Speaker 1:This concludes the first podcast of it's kind. A stoners guide to quantum computing. [inaudible 00:07:47].
