Quantum computers are way more powerful than
classical computers and that’s because they’ve access to special digital code that does not exist in classical computers. We have now demonstrated, using two quantum bits inside a silicon chip, that we can create these non-classical codes required for a functioning quantum computer. And we have done this with the highest accuracy ever recorded. This quantum code uses a striking
phenomenon called an entanglement. You see, in a classical computer, you use as code, simply all the possible combinations of the bits that you have available. But in a quantum computer, you can also write quantum superpositions of all the classical code words. And these new code words represent an additional computing language you can use to expand the
power of your computer. These new code words have no analogy in the classical world and they are in fact, quantum entangled states. What we did was to violate a principle called Bell’s Inequality which sets a hard limit to the amount of correlation there can be
between two classical bits. This experiment was done using two quantum bits the electron and the nucleus of a phosphorus atom inside a silicon electronic chip. We first prepared both quantum bits in the 0 state. We then put the first one in a superposition of 0
and 1. Then, we flipped the value of the second quantum bit, conditional on the value of the first and now the bits are entangled. The accuracy with which we have written these quantum two-bit code words is the highest ever achieved in any experiment and yet, this was done using a silicon chip that is quite similar to the one you have in your normal computer. This means we can now expand this quantum computer device write even more complicated quantum
code words and use them to solve very hard problems such as molecular simulations, drug
design and database search.

    Hopefully this means we'll see a real quantum computer developed soon.

    I only care about the implications this has for gaming. not even the slightest bit excited that it could mean accelerated cures for every known disease, plastics made from completely pollution free sources, development of synthesized fuels with zero carbon footprint, economic stabilization and growth brought on by perfect market prediction analysis. nope. gimme dem pixels.

    Why can't there be 9 bit computers? Pythagoras taught us that there are only ever 9 numbers. By simply adding the numbers of any multiple digit number together, we are always left with a number between 1 and 9. Example: 528 = 5+2+8 = 15 = 1+5 = 6.

    The relationship between these 9 numbers create everything. They are used to explain:

    -The structure of DNA in Marko Rodin's "Infinity Pattern"
    .142857142857142857142857142857142857142857142857 ➀ (△ = 3.142857, decimals repeated)
    .285714285714285714285714285714285714285714285714 ➁ (x 2 = 6.285714 . . . )
    .571428571428571428571428571428571428571428571428 ➂ (x 2 x 2 = 12.571428 . . . )

    -Toroidal fields in Douglas G. Preston’s Toroidal Scale

    195∞276∞384∞|174∞285∞396|∞168∞249∞357

    – Colour and Sound
    Hz | Root# | Nm | A444 Music Note ♪
    174 | 3 | Ultraviolet Invisible | F3 ♪
    285 | 6 | Ultraviolet Invisible | C#4 ♪
    396 | 9 | Ultraviolet Visible | G4 ♪
    417 | 3 | Violet/Blue Visible | G#4 ♪
    528 | 6 | Green/Yellow Visible | C5 ♪
    639 | 9 | Red/Orange Visible | D#5 ♪
    741 | 3 | Infrared Visible | F#5 ♪
    852 | 6 | Infrared Invisible | G#5 ♪
    963 | 9 | Infrared Invisible | B5 ♪

    Wouldn't a 9 bit computer, where every digit represented itself as its colour and sound be the closer to the idea of an "organic computer?"

    Nikola Tesla said: "If you only knew the magnificence of the 3, 6 and 9, then you would have a key to the universe." Solfeggio frequencies: The 3rd, 6th, and 9th frequencies are 396, 639, 963.

    I'm curious.
