I wasn't talking about them, was i? And what do they have to do with a simulated universe?
You've jumped from working on quantum computers to saying, oh, by the way, the universe is a gigantic quantum computer.
SL: When you zap things with light to build quantum computers, you're hacking existing systems. You're hijacking the computation that's already happening in the universe, just like a hacker takes over someone else's computer.
You seem to be saying that the concept of the universe as one huge quantum computer is not just a metaphor – it's real.
SL: Absolutely. Atoms and electrons are bits. Atomic collisions are "ops." Machine language is the laws of physics. The universe is a quantum computer.

For anyone to claim Scientist who disagree with their blind beliefs is a bored nut or not a very good Scientist is just delusional.
