Quantum computers claimed to prove existence of parallel universes

Wired posts an interesting interview with the scientist who invented the notion of quantum computers with the aim of proving the existence of parallel universes.

He explains:

I think that when universal quantum computers are finally achieved technologically, and when they are routinely performing computations where there is simply more going on there than a classical computer or even the whole universe acting as a computer could possibly achieve, then people will get very impatient and bored, I think, with attempts to say that those computations don't really happen, and that the equations of quantum mechanics are merely ways of expressing what the answer would be but not how it was obtained.

'The programmers will know perfectly well how it was obtained, and they will have programmed the steps that will have obtained it. The fact that answers are obtained from a quantum computer that couldn't be obtained any other way will make people take seriously that the process that obtained them was objectively real.

Nothing more than that is needed to lead to the conclusion that there are parallel universes, because that is specifically how quantum computers work.'

Wired calls Oxford University theoretical physicist David Deutsch, author of 'The Fabric of Reality,' the "father of quantum computing."

Think Q-bits, not just ordinary bits and bites.
