The physicist David Deutsch (The Beginning of Infinity, 2011) commented that we do not know yet how to ask exploratory questions. And the one question we do know how to ask, we cannot answer.
“Does quantum computing play an essential role in our consciousness?”
There are two pathways to an answer. One is the idea that multiple parallel universes can be coaxed to collaborate on a single computation. The second one is the concept of disconnected separated multiple universes. Ignorance to one side, the pressure of making a choice may be lightened by knowing that art is another source of wisdom.
