According to what I believe, quantum computing is already here with the internet. I believe, based on research that I have done, that every human is a
quantum entity able to make choices (basically, use trial-and-error) in order to create ideas. The internet allows these ideas to develop, evolve and
compete with each other.
I am going to assume that when someone makes a choice, there is an equal probability of it occurring in any matter. However, the choice can be
influenced by things such as prior knowledge. Sometimes a choice can't even be made without the proper prior knowledge, in fact.
Imagine a series of ideas growing just like a tree or other organism. For example, math. It starts out with simple equations, and then people use
those to derive algebra and geometry, and from there, more complicated things arise, built upon prior ideas. Any ideas that were not as useful as
others were discarded.
The internet provides a quantum computer that automatically sifts through ideas and finds the most efficient and effective ones, if the search
algorithms have enough input and are calibrated correctly to be unbiased.
I laid down that theory because there is a practical use of the internet I'm not sure if everyone is explicitly aware of. Although anyone can
participate in an idea being created by the internet, ideas do compete.
My point is, if you are able to access a database of information with enough sources, you can do an analysis on that data in order to determine the
most efficient and effective way of doing something if that data is competitive.
Examples are going to be with gaming, because I apply this all the time. For Magic: The Gathering, I go to a website named
which analyzes the content of thousands of Magic: Online games and then automatically sorts them
into different deck archetypes, and gives you a list of cards used in winning decks of that archetype and their percentage chance.
By having access to this information, I can create a deck with an empirically tested main board and side board, ready to compete in the meta game -
without even looking at any real deck list. In fact, my deck might be entirely new - in fact, it changes every week. But it wins almost every game
because of the research behind it.
The internet allows us to do this kind of thing, and I just wanted to make sure that people were aware of how come (in my opinion at least), and aware
of what they could do with it.
The same sort of thing can be done by looking up YouTube tutorials and figuring that the best ones for your search criteria will probably get filtered
to the top.
It's something that was not necessarily always available - although in the past, peer-review, competitive meetings in person, books and lectures
probably had a similar filtering effect.
