Matter is in a constant state of Quantum Evolution and as is the history of our Solar System

Yes...This is an issue where I have no idea what is the history or reality. Since it is impossible for the Plasma that cooled to become our Star and Planets to also create the Heavy Elements...did such elements have to wait for Supernovas to occur to exist.
such a Quantum Computer would be capable of Self Determination and Independent thought. In effect...it would be Conscious thus ALIVE.
Hovever...Big Bang Temps. were over 8000 Kelvin and at such Temps. an Atomic Nucleus cannot exist.
The Human Brain is a Biological Computer of Great Complexity. It is Bio-Electric and needs fuel to run. A Silicon version of the Brain would also be Electric but not need fuel. It would need the complexity to allow Mental Growth.
