Transcript of Quantum Prezi

‘Today, we all have seen the future of warfare... I think what you’re seeing here is a revolution in military warfare. We’ve had the age-old expression that knowledge is power, and absolute knowledge is absolute power. What we’re witnessing now is the transformation of the level of information as broad and as absolute as one can conceive of it today. So, the actual domination of the information world will put us in a position to maintain superiority over any other force for the foreseeable future…
....So, I think we talk about the future, the future is the United States as far as this capability is concerned. I’m not aware of any other country that has this capability, or even has this opportunity to examine in this kind of experimental basis the kind of technology that will give us this edge. So, we look to the future. The future is, as Toffler says, that unless you tame technology, you will encounter future shock. We’re not only taming technology, we are turning technology into not future shock, but future security.'

'Classical means that things are ordinary. Quantum means that things are weird…
In situations where classical laws are valid, we can predict the future. In situations where quantum laws are valid, we can observe the past but we cannot predict the future.'

In the course of working together, Shultz and Drell coined the term ‘quantum diplomacy’ – a reaction to the impetuous nature of the beast. “Sid said, 'As soon as you observe something in physics it changes, so it's very hard to really observe something,’” Shultz recalled. “I said, ‘Boy, in diplomacy, you put a TV camera around something, it's not the same.’”

A dispute has broken out in Germany's capital over the best way to remember former US President Ronald Reagan. Conservatives in Berlin would like to see the renaming of a street or square in his honor. They allege, however, that the city's left-wing government is hindering efforts to remember the conservative American leader.

The other Copenhagen School
Einstein set the
first wave
in motion and built upon Planck’s quantum discovery to produce his two famous treatises on the dilation, contraction and simultaneity of space-time; the special theory of relativity (1905) and the general theory of relativity (1916).
second wave
of quantum mechanics swept away over two hundred years of received wisdom about the microphysical nature of the universe. Physicists intuit, posit, model, debate, disagree and eventually agree and prove both mathematically and experimentally that quanta in the form of atoms, photons and electrons could exist as both waves and particles until the point of collapse or observation; that their position and velocity could not be simultaneously measured; that they could communicate across vast distances; that they could pass through seemingly impermeable barriers
third wave
emerged from the application of these new principles to produce new quantum technology. From the advent of nuclear weapons to post-war applications of lasers, transistors and fibre optics, the revolution in quantum technology has transformed the nature, production and distribution of power as well as knowledge.
fourth wave
was quantum cosmology. Based on a renewed effort to explain everything from the Big Bang to the Higgs boson particle, quantum cosmology pursued a unified theory for the beginning, evolution and ending of not just the one we live in, but possibly multiple universes.
fifth wave
, perhaps the most controversial and potentially the most revolutionary, is quantum consciousness. If the mind - human or artificial - proves to be quantum, classical tenets of causality, rationality and intentionality will also be called into question.
