Ok your technology is 1,000 years behind is what your stating. You are showing the world it's not a good process because of uncertainty. What your building is a Turing machine. A slide rule with a large energy foot print. Quantum mechanics describes a physical place. To understand the Quantum physical nature of it you can't do it without understanding photonic resolution. Photons have infinite Shell's which Carry Quantum Fields by Fielding Relativity with Gravity. You could never build enough Quantum circuits for anything useful this way. Quantum errors are a matter of focus alignments and true position. In other words there are no errors in nature God doesn't play dice.

I have an idea to make a quantum computer and to account for errors and corrections, It looks pretty crazy. I can imagine the power of it,  may be used for evil and not good so am sitting on it.

Professor Tao gave a good lecture on the mathematical techniques of proof by attempted disproof, and if Quantum Computing device is going to do anything useful, it's going to have to do similar operations? And, (rhetorically), that is why a digital machine is the only successful device so far, and why parallel processing is the "middle ground "? The efficient "solution" is to have more people who are better trained and informed with more transparent access to better data through improving search engines coupled directly to human brain power. (Would that be a voluntary Matrix?)

So how would a Quantum computer stack up against a DNA based computer? What would be the pros and cons of putting the time and money into research for either/or?? And given the astronomical costs of going down either road (Like you could easily buy a Boeing 747 for your own personal use any time you desired it for the next 20 years) just to compare to the research costs of either computer, and why should we not just stick with a more normal Intel Xeon based processor type computer for example?

+Owen Mitchell virtual reality ! Raytracing is a search algorithm that would work with Grover algorithm. Imagine a quchip that can synthesize a fullblown holographic VR with only a milliWatt.
