Quantum Computing

Quantum Computing Metaphor

“While regular computers store and manipulate data by representing binary ones and zeroes, a quantum computer uses quantum bits or “qubits,” exploiting quantum phenomena to represent data in more than one state at once. This makes it possible to compute information in a fundamentally different way, and to perform some parallel calculations in the same time it would take to perform a single one.” (source)

Compare to thinking logically vs thinking intuitively – similar relationship. Logical thinking requires following each possibility to its conclusion, where intuitive thinking allows thinking on multiple levels at once. Maybe this shift in computing will coincide with (or inspire) a shift in human thinking.

Tao

Not-knowing is true knowledge.
Presuming to know is a disease.
First realize that you are sick;
Then you can move toward health.

The master is her own physician.
She has healed herself of all knowing.
Thus she is truly whole.

-Lao Tzu

Afternoon meanders into evening

Afternoon meanders into evening
The murmur of a family preparing dinner next door
The waves of the freeway crashing
My heart bursts with something
Not quite joy
Not quite melancholy
A twisted, mournful thing, but cherished
A disfigured bird stretching out to fly
A woman laughing through an apartment wall
The last bite of delicious cake
A child, alone in a room, listening to the rain

God is not something we receive

God is not something we receive. Truth is received. Grace is received. God is something we create to explain these great bestowings. It is the illusion of self that creates the illusion of giving and receiving. And it is the illusion of receiving that creates god. This illusion is the greatest work of art, and it is ours to create. As long as we know this, we will be at peace.
