              So are they just doing this (super cooling) to make the architecture smaller because they hit the wall in terms of smaller circuitry where the laws of physics start to make electrons jump circuits so they have to cool it down to temper these effects? Is that all this is?

                          400 super conductor process 2 types of data according to quantum phisics so if you want to get the letter a then it'll give 6800,000,000.047987 letters according to quatum entanglement
                          so it requires a high speed photon processor and that quantum computer
                          but why?
                          photon processor sorts all the answers by AI and give them to data server
                          so PP gives you 2 answer (shirks 6800,000,000.047987 data to 2) and we would calculate the correct one!
