Ahh… The Aleph…

I just had a realization that The Aleph is like the atomic bomb, the realization of a theory that describes how matter can be converted to energy. In the case of The Aleph, this conversion is from processing to memory, and the ratio, the orders of magnitude, bear a resemblance.

In the case of The Aleph, the conversion is a very large amount of computing power for an almost infinite about of memory.  The key however is that what seems like a large amount of computing power by today’s “conventional” standards is but a drop in the bucket compared to what a quantum computer is capable of.

This is another interesting coincidence, that the key to unlocking The Aleph is the same key to unlocking nuclear weapons: action at the atomic level.

Quantum designs, using Aleph-type storage, will make the data centers of today look like the mechanical computers of old.  We will look back at the simplistic exponential process of bolting machine to machine akin to so many cogs stacked on top of one another.
