Since the birth of the quantum computer, the way quantum acts became a hot topic.
It is said that misty ambiguous being called quantum comprises the whole immense universe from micro to macro.
Accordingly, the world we sense is nothing but 2-dimensional information projected onto our perception as 3-dimensional existence due to quantum entanglement.
If quantum froze and everything in the world became a 2-dimensional state, how would the image appear to us?
