Don't get me started, man. It is already my understanding that they are working on prototype computers that operate on the principle of "entanglement" in quantum mechanics, whereby two sub-atomic particles split and mirror each other's behavior "instantaneously" over space and time, regardless of distance (1 foot or 1 light year). They proved this in the 90s over a distance of a few miles using splitters, state changers/measurers, and fiber optic tubing....instant communication between particles faster than the speed of light. It's part of that behavior that Fineman said no physicist truly understood. Anyway, imagine a computer that operated with binary signals based on entanglement! We can't even think that fast. Mind boggling and not so science fiction anymore.

""sheesh be carefull!!! one of you is going to hook up too many computers in loops and create a rift in the fabric of time,transforming reality into a infinite musical note,spanning endless/seemless loops untill all matter fades into a vortex.lol. scary visionary.
