The typical popularization article on quantum computing usually comprises a description of what a qubit is (the unit of information that plays the role of the bits of conventional computers), a brief comment on what quantum correlation is (and how Einstein was supposedly puzzled by it, calling it "spooky action at a distance"; read more about this here), some recent achievements and some expected applications. Typically cited applications of quantum computing are the solving of mathematical problems virtually impossible for current computers to solve, cryptography (based on such mathematics), and chemical and physical simulations.
The technology is really promising and many large companies such as Google, Microsoft, IBM, and Amazon are investing huge amounts of money in its development. Also, there are already several dozen lesser-known companies specializing in the development of the corresponding hardware and software.
However, there is one aspect that is never mentioned, which nevertheless has the potential to trigger a real revolution, radically changing our vision of the universe. That aspect is the possible relationship between psi and quantum computing. Surprisingly, a Google search on this aspect for the moment does not return any relevant links.
I already talked in one of my previous articles about my feeling that mainstream science and parapsychology seem to be heading towards a point of convergence called the theory of everything. Now, I believe that there will soon be some events that will dramatically accelerate this convergence. In the same article, I also explained that everything points to psi being related to quantum entanglement (see also the great books Entangled minds by Dean Radin and The Connectivity Hypothesis by Erwin Laszlo). This, in turn, reveals that space and time are irrelevant at the quantum level and particles separated by enormous distances can influence each other instantaneously. The effect, however, seems to transcend to larger scales, but physicists have not yet recognized its true extent. On the other hand, physicists have more and more data pointing to human consciousness affecting the outcome of certain quantum experiments, sometimes even retroactively (see also the above-cited books). Of course, in parapsychology, this is called psychokinesis, although most mainstream scientists ignore this parallelism.
The point is that apparently, this effect is much more pronounced on the quantum scale than what can be perceived in our everyday life. As a consequence, it can be expected that as soon as quantum-computing technology begins to work in a reproducible fashion (there are still many issues to be resolved to accomplish that) strange things will start to happen. Soon it will be evident that quantum processors can be influenced not only by their material environment (a phenomenon called quantum decoherence, which is a real headache for developers right now) but also by human consciousness.
The same large companies mentioned above are currently frantically searching for ways to interface computers to our brains, but they have not really had much success so far. The source of the interest in this possibility is obvious, considering the revolution it would cause, for example, in the military and video game industries. Quantum computers would open a door to a new, mostly hidden world, the world of the Universal Consciousness. Undoubtedly, once this point is reached, companies would try to take advantage of quantum correlation to connect conventional computers with our minds wirelessly through quantum chips. Quantum chips could become the ideal basis for studying not only such telepathic communication but also psychokinesis, clairvoyance, and precognition.
Will we be able to handle all this high-tech magic?
