I am not a scientist, neither do I work in education. I am just someone who is reasonably intelligent and inquisitive. I am not going to pretend I understood this completely but it is the best explanation I have found for Quantum Computing thus far and I was certainly able to gain a basic grasp of the principles. To be fair, some of what was written I just have to accept is correct (I always feel reassured when I read the statement “ Nobody knows how that happens, but it does”…if scientists don’t know I don’t need to worry about it either).
I will now go off and try to impress my friends with the little information I have gleaned here.
