If quantum... a sonnet on quantum mechanics & computing and the mind
“God does not play dice with the universe.”
- Albert Einstein, The Born-Einstein Letters, 1916-55
... or does He?
If quantum is the boson of the mind,
if D-Wave is the wave the future rides,
if we are ready not to be purblind,
if we can take in bounds prodigious strides,
if God is in our molecules (or not),
if we are God Himself... or He is we,
with what is heaven’s promise fraught?
... or what’s unseen beyond we’ve yet to see?
If we’ve overshot the rim of space and time,
where were we likely sooner to arrive?
... and is the universe still as sublime
as ever? ... or are we now in overdrive?
If you are reading this and feel confused,
Well, join the club. I also am bemused.
