Preface

part of The Coreworld: Quantum Teleportation and Artificial Souls by Alexander (Sasha) Wait
In previous work, Wait 2004, I proposed to:

In this work, and somewhat informally, I define the complexity of the QVM to be equal to the length, in bits, of a compact classical description of its state. This complexity measure, at least for the QVM proposed, seems to escape some of the philosophical problems that plague, essentially, identical measures for a classical (virtual machine) ecology. The verification of this claim-through experiment or proof-presents an intriguing avenue of research...
