But no one has shown any quantum speedup. There is no quantum magic that requires another universe to explain.Rogerhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/03474078324293158376noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8148573551417578681.post-65117434131505522712014-02-13T11:43:44.619-08:002014-02-13T11:43:44.619-08:00>The quantum speedup on factorization has yet t...>The quantum speedup on factorization has yet to be demonstrated<br /><br />It may be true that Shor's algorithm has yet to be implemented for large numbers, but it's uncontroversial that it works in principle, and physicists who believe in the Copenhagen Interpretation will make identical predictions to their Many Worlds colleagues. So the question of where such a calculation takes place is already legitimate and meaningful.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8148573551417578681.post-83478313716254388482014-02-12T07:13:47.301-08:002014-02-12T07:13:47.301-08:00The double-slit experiment is not so strange if yo...The double-slit experiment is not so strange if you believe that light is a wave.

He further issues the challenge (in 'The Fabric of Reality', Ch.9) of considering *where* a quantum factorisation is performed, given that a single universe has too few particles to hold the intermediate results of the calculation.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8148573551417578681.post-83414345480159572622014-02-11T14:44:11.003-08:002014-02-11T14:44:11.003-08:00Hitler's cosmology gig is up!
