this publication the dialogue is simplified. rather than utilizing summary 'boxes' with correlations among inputs and outputs, this ebook makes use of a regular item that you just recognize good - an easy banana - and asks you to visualize what the area will be like if how a banana tasted relied on the way you peeled it.
Comparing this Bananaworld to our personal international highlights precisely what's (and what is not) extraordinary approximately our quantum universe, and illustrates the unconventional thesis that quantum mechanics is de facto concerning the constitution of quantum info. What we've got came upon is that the probabilities for representing, manipulating, and speaking info are very varied than we thought.
