    That is awesome and probably renders

    even more relevant.

    It's really these simple little ideas and transformations which people come up with which cause the biggest ructions, when taken to their conclusions.

    ETA Although it's "only an optimising technique", it allows exploration of aspects of bulk/boundary entanglement dualities heretofore inaccessible without planet-scale compute resources.

    Scientists ‘teleport’ complex info using physics trick branded ‘spooky’ by Einstein – and it could create ‘unhackable’ internet.

    For some reason I find that Paul bloke profoundly irritating.

    Looks as though phrases like "Ah, there you are Smithers" may become passe'.

    It's a lovely little mover.

    There may be a way of sneaking a peak at Schrödinger's cat — the famous feline-based thought experiment that describes the mysterious behavior of subatomic particles — without permanently killing the (hypothetical) animal.

    So one kills the animal temporarily?

    So a single massive particle that appears to be in two places at once - or, more accurately perhaps, in one place or the other? Let's assume the former as a working description and ask the question: what is its mass? If we move away a little, surely in the limit the combined gravity must equal that of a single particle, and so each state masses half?

    What if the molecule were charged? Here the effect we're looking at is massively stronger (electromagnetism beats gravity). Do the two states experience mutual Coulomb repulsion?

    They are in two places at once, on the average, as long as you don't look.

    Yes, but consider the questions I asked.

    The frontmost person on the 1st photograph looks like an Obelisk's sidekick. Coincidence?

    Not remotely funny.

    I think my questions are piquant.
