The Quantum Pontiff

Biblical Quantum Humor

What do you call a quantum computer built in the shape of a cubic lattice and containing 450000 qubits?

Noah’s ark, of course! Genesis 6:14. Sorry, I just couldn’t resist.

    Well I guess I got it wrong. I thought it might be a Rubik’s qubit.

    You mean Genesis 6:15?

    And Solomon’s Temple was 60 qubits by 20 qubits — no wonder the stories from that era always sound so decoherent.

    Don’t forget, on the first passover, the angel of death used the First Born Approximation.

    logical or physical qubits?????

    I think they must be logical qubits or else the whole ark would fall apart. On the other hand maybe this is why they haven’t discovered the remains of the ark: all those cubic cubits decohered. (Though this leaves the problem of where the classical bits are…)

    Didn’t “the classical bits” get left behind, along with dinosaurs and “the last unicorn”?
