We’re a little closer to explaining life with quantum mechanics thanks to research carried out with an IBM supercomputer.
Encoding behaviours related to self-replication, mutation, interaction between individuals, and (inevitably) death, a quantum algorithm has been used to show that quantum computers can indeed mimic some of the patterns of biology in the real world. This is still an early proof-of-concept prototype, but it opens the door to diving further into the relationship between quantum mechanics and the origins of life.
The same principles governing quantum physics may even have had a role to play in forming our genetic code. (1)
Life is weird.
We are not sure what it is.
But we are sure it is something (good).
Death is weird.
We not sure what it is.
But we are sure it is something (bad).
But could both perceptions be wrong?
Look through the mirror of existence.
Life as a result of death.
Death as a result of life.
A cosmos balancing between existence and non-existence.
For Being is neither…
