" #Positivism can be circumscribed as a philosophical approach that is strictly confined to the appearance of things, which it equates with #reality itself. Since in positivism appearance is reality, anything that doesn’t have an appearance cannot be part of reality. We know from #quantum #physics, #astronomy, some fields of #biology and even the gist of thought itself that reality occurs in worlds that are beyond observable events. The truth, in the relationship between the #observed and the #observer, has mystified itself to the extent that it no longer fits any scale or definition. Positivism denies this, and therefore to an extent resembles the idol-worshipping of #ancient times, where the idol constitutes the image of reality." - The Political Thought of #Abdullah #Öcalan [ #Kurdistan, Woman’s #Revolution and Democratic Confederalism ] (2017) #anarchism #books #quote

- #IBM #Introduces #Quantum #Volume to #Track #Progress Towards the Quantum #Age


Quantum computing companies are racing to squeeze ever more qubits into their devices, but is this really a solid sign of progress? IBM is proposing a more holistic measure it calls “quantum volume” (QV) that it says gives a better indication of how close we are to practical devices.

Experimental rejection of observer-independence in the quantum world


The scientific method relies on facts, established through repeated measurements and agreed upon universally, independently of who observed them. In quantum mechanics, the objectivity of observations…

A Look Ahead at Disruptive Technologies for ( HIGH PERFORMANCE COMPUTING ) HPC....
As the HPC industry reaches the end of technology scaling based on Moore’s Law, system designers and hardware manufacturers must look towards more complex technologies that can replace the gains in performance provided by transistor scaling.
There are many different potential solutions to the problems faced by in trying to extend computing performance. In the short term, HPC users have been able to look at parallelism and the increasing use of accelerators to drive more performance but this contributes to a need for memory bandwidth and more complicated coding. This is not a long-term solution as accelerators and parallel processing still rely on the same technologies and are also affected by the hard material limits placed on continued transistor scaling.

Quantum physics proves that death is an illusion

“Lanza, instead, said that when we die our life becomes a ‘perennial flower that returns to bloom in the multiverse.’”

What if buddhists are right?

And rebirth is not necessarily taking place here on earth but elsewhere?

Is death an illusion?

Why does Quantum Physics Work if it is so wrong? CNPS Saturday Science Chat (Feb 23, 2019).... There is a gap between Copenhagen quantum mechanics' many problems and the fact that it works so well that it allows us to build things like supercomputers.
The puzzling part is why does it work so well anyway?

#PortalToAscension
Published on Jan 24, 2019
#WilliamHenry takes us on an exploration of our true #world #history through the #ancientwisdom, scriptures and artworked shared by these cultures. What did they know about the concept of ascension and how advanced were the technologically? Could they have had an advanced understanding of the universe and our place within it?

Machine learning is growing ever more sophisticated, thanks to algorithms which pit two artificial intelligences against each other. These algorithms, known as generative adversarial networks (GANs), have already been used to create art, crack encryption codes, and produce uncannily real pictures of faces and animals.

Open source software is becoming crucial in the design and testing of quantum algorithms. Many of the tools are backed by major commercial vendors with the goal to make it easier to develop quantum software: this mirrors how well-funded open machine learning frameworks enabled the development of complex models and their execution on equally complex hardware.

Physicists from Skoltech have invented a new method for calculating the dynamics of large quantum systems. Underpinned by a combination of quantum and classical modeling, the method has been successfully applied to nuclear magnetic resonance in solids. The results of the study were published in Physical Review B.
