Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2021-08-29]: Researchers have implemented a prototype Quantum device that can generate and analyze a quantum superposition of possible futures. Using a novel quantum algorithm, the possible outcomes of a decision process are encoded as a superposition of different photon locations. Using interferometry, the team show that it is possible to conduct a search through the set of possible futures without looking at each future individually. [1]

Possible values. Actual values.

For the cosmos, it matters not.
For the values are not the ones describing it.
Nor the potential of these values.

A circle drawn on the dirt.

Infinite. Finite. Indescribable.
The circle cannot be measured.

The wind has risen…
The circle is fading now…
