Do you remember taking your pulse on your wrist? Go ahead and place your fingers on the spot that you remember. Don’t think about it. Just do it. Now don’t move just keep it there. Did you find your pulse?
The Mandela Effect and D-Wave Quantum Computers | Nanalyze
We’ve been writing a fair amount about all things quantum in the past few years, in particular, quantum computing. We spend a lot of time researching technology themes in hopes of finding the “next Microsoft” so to speak. While doing all this research, we sometimes come across emerging technologies that just make us nerd out hardcore. There really is no other way to describe it but if you get that same feeling we do when reading about the future potential of augmented reality, then you will understand exactly what we mean. We recently had one of these nerd out moments while researching D-Wave quantum computers and we just had to share our excitement with our lovely readers. We’re going to start out by introducing you to something that is borderline conspiracy theory but interesting nonetheless. It’s called the Mandela Effect and here’s how popular it has become recently:
What is The Mandela Effect?
The Mandela Effect is named after Nelson Mandela who some people claim to have remembered as dying while in prison. He actually died in December of 2013. The idea here is that you can find tons of examples in our world of things that people remember differently from how they actually are. Remember growing up and reading about the BERNSTEIN BEARS? You remember that, right? Stop reading and think about that for 10 seconds. Ready? The Bernstein Bears never existed. It’s the “Bernstain Bears”, not the “Bernstein Bears”. Ever watch Mr. Rodgers when you were growing up? Remember when he sang “It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood”? He actually said, “It’s a beautiful day in THIS neighborhood”. These are just a few examples but you can find hundreds of them out there. The reason for this some say isn’t simply that everyone incorrectly remembered certain obscure details. The reason is much the same as the glitches in the matrix. The reason for the Mandela Effect is said to be (get ready for this) because we’re now starting to do some very strange things with D-Wave quantum computers.
What Does the Mandela Effect have to do with D-Wave Quantum Computers?
Quantum physics involves some very weird subject matter. We recently defined everything quantum for you so that you can better understand some of the terminology in what is perhaps one of the most difficult domains out there to understand. We thought we’d seen it all until we recently watched an 18 minute lecture from 3 years ago given by the founder and Chief Technology Officer of D-Wave, Geordie Rose, who we can only assume is an extremely intelligent and level headed individual. He is credible, and so is his company, D-Wave which has attracted investments from Google, Goldman Sachs, Jeff Bezos, and renowned venture capitalist Steve Jurvetson. Mr. Jurvetson sits on the boards of Tesla, SpaceX, Synthetic Genomics, and D-Wave. With that said, this lecture started getting really weird, really fast with the below quote from someone who is considered to be one of the founders of quantum computing:
