Find out how quantum science will alter your investing and business in the years ahead.
This is the seventh lesson in the business and investing course that shows why colonial property, nostalgia and old time values have extra appeal in this day and age. This knowledge can help you improve your business and investing. I have started a new business, www.blueridgecrafts.com and this course shares philosophies on business investing and marketing and we examine the businesses to understand how these philosophies have been incorporated at www.blueridgecrafts.com. So this course is not theory, but shows how a business is actually using them now. If you have not read lessons one through three, they are at Lesson one, Lesson two, Lesson three, Lesson four, Lesson five, & Lesson six.
There is a huge and growing market for inner peace and this brings us to our quantum state and the Wellness Revolution. Products and services will grow for inner peace in two ways that we’ll call natural and scientific.
A look at the scientific aspect can help us understand quantum mechanics. An understanding of how quantum science will impact markets can be seen in an article in USA Today entitled, “Quantum Computer” which states Atomic Quantum computers (QC) will probably take the world into the next era of information technology.
The QC works in Qubits of processing power and has a different type of logic (which works on the principles of quantum mechanics) that makes their speed immense. For example a forty qubit (IBM labs have already created up to three qubit computers) processor would have all the power of today's super computers, but would be enormously faster. A Quantum computer would be a billion times faster than a Pentium III PC. According to the article, a current super computer trying to find one number in a database of all the world's phone books would take one month. A quantum computer would take 27 minutes! Labs around the world are pushing this science hard. IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Bell Labs, UC Berkeley are just a few U.S. concerns that have invested heavily in this technology. Because these computers will be able to break any type of code or encryption, the CIA, Pentagon etc. are both very nervous yet interested all at the same time. The government has set up a well-funded quantum computer lab at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. The point?
What I am about to write is not science fiction nor airy-fairy stuff. Billions are already being invested by some of the largest companies and governments in the world. Yet all this investing is in something none of us may be able to understand or even worse can't even believe. According to the article, Charles Bennett, IBM's best known quantum computer scientist says, “It takes a great deal of courage to accept these things. If you do, you have to believe in a lot of other strange things.” MIT's Neil Gershenfeld, who with IBM's Issac Chuang built the most successful Quantum computer to date, says, ” Nature knows how to compute. We just don't know how to ask the right questions.”
Here is how the computer works. All atoms have a spin of up or down, so scientists can use these spins in the same way that transistors are currently used in today's computers to represent a 0 or 1. So far so good, but here is where the quantum factors come in that are the source of the amazing power of these computers. Atoms can have both an up or down spin at the same time until they are measured. The act of measuring forces the atom to choose between up or down. In essence what these scientists are saying is it's not the atom that has the spin, but the act of observation! In other words, these computers do not depend on matter but on motion.
Remember I am simply passing on what USA Today says IBM, Hewlett Packard, the U.S. Government and others are spending billions on right now. But Quantum weirdness does not end here. The article continues by saying that qubits don't do calculations in linear form like current computers. They instead do all possible calculations at the same time, straddling all possible answers until the act of measuring the qubits forces them to settle on an answer.
According to the article, the Quantum computer holds an infinite number of right answers for an infinite number of universes (remember I am not writing this, the USA Today article and the computers already exist). The computer just gives you the right answer for the universe you happen to be in at the time. To believe in Quantum computers (which our government and private industry is spending billions on) we have to believe in parallel universes.
This is hard to grasp and then it gets even harder! Quantum computers gain even more power because of a process called entanglement. When two atoms are observed by the same force, they become entangled and remain so even though they may be light years apart. Their spins are in all positions at once, but the instant one entangled atom is observed its spin goes one way. At that same instant, the spin of the other particle locks in the opposite direction (even though they are then light years apart). This is essential to the increased speed of Quantum computers. Today's computers are limited to the speed, which an electron can pass through a wire (the speed of light). With entanglement, a quantum computer's speed can blow by today's computers because the shift in spin even over light years is instantaneous! In addition because of entanglement according to USA Today, there are ways to do Star Trek type teleportation. Remember I am not writing these words. According to USA Today, Stan Williams of Hewlett-Packard says, “The potential is so huge and it would be so disruptive it could completely change the way at least some computing is done.”
Quantum science will change everything markets do, but it will go way beyond machines and computer’s. What the article above shows is that our attitude, our attention or intention or focus or beliefs or let's use the word, faith, that creates our world. From this we can begin to understand how markets are developing for inner peace. Learn what this means in business and investing in the next lesson. Until then good business investing and inner peace!
