Hi All,

from: http://www.reed.edu/~rsavage/qcompute.html
Quantum Computation
      "A quantum computer carrying out an ordinary computation, in which
no bits are superposed, generates a
sequence of waves analogous to the sound of "change ringing" from an
English church tower, in which the bells are never struck simultaneously
and the sequence of sounds follows strict mathematical rules. A
computation done in quantum parallel mode is like a symphony: its
"sound" is that of many waves interfering with one another."

Umm, but is this interference "in the mind of the observer" only, e.g.
it is subjective? Objectively, whatever that means, the waves would not
interact at all! Right?

Just Wondering...
