It seems that work and life is conspiring to leave me no time to finish my write-up on my General Fusion visit. Started it weeks ago but still I am not ready to hit the publish button on this piece.
In the meantime I highly recommend the following blog that I came across. It covers very similar topics than the ones here, and also shares a similar outlook. For instance, this article beautifully sums up why I never warmed up to Everett’s Multiverse interpretation (although I have to admit reading Julian Barbour’s End of Time softened my stance a bit – more on this later).
The ‘Fun Is Real’ blog is a cornucopia of good physics writing and should provide many hours of thought-provoking reading material to bridge over the dearth of my current posting schedule.
On a side note, given that this goes to the core of the topic I write about on this blog, the following news should not go unmentioned: Australian researchers reportedly have created a cluster state of 10,000 entangled photonic qubits (h/t Raptis T.).
This is magnitudes more than has been previously reported. Now if they were to manage to get some quantum gates applied to them we’d be getting somewhere.
