Reagrding the : multiplicity of states simultaneously:
Think matter to its spatial eqivalency here [as it travels at rate %"c" of course (www.CIGTheory.com) so it can atain its spatial eqivalency]. The "multiplicity of states simultaneously" may be viwed according to that "new space" resultant from the traveling mass.
Regarding "The mere act of measurement forces the system to choose a single state of being":
The act of measurement relies on the fact that the "object being measured" remains still, at or near classical rates of travel near zero %"c". This forces the spacial manifested equivalency (when traveling at greater rates) to a single point particle again, one that can be measured. This is the true and real collapse, the decoherence of the "probability" (i.e. actual new space, not a probability) to the measurable point particle.
In quantum information theory, quantum discord is a measure of nonclassical correlations between two subsystems of a quantum system. It includes correlations that are due to quantum physical effects but do not necessarily involve quantum entanglement.
The notion of quantum discord was introduced by Harold Ollivier and Wojciech H. Zurek and, independently by L. Henderson and Vlatko Vedral. Olliver and Zurek referred to it also as a measure of quantumness of correlations. From the work of these two research groups it follows that quantum correlations can be present in certain mixed separable states; In other words, separability alone does not imply the absence of quantum effects. The notion of quantum discord thus goes beyond the distinction which had been made earlier between entangled versus separable (non-entangled) quantum states.
So, the discord may be viewed from a CIG Theory perspective accordingly.
While watching the movie Star Trek last night, it occurred to me that the new space offered up in CIG Theory, retains information of the original particle however in its spatial form. That retention of information is what allows the particle to re-emerge when it slows down and decoheres (collapses) back into the original particle, or at least as original as it can be (i.e. a bit here or there may have been dopped along the way). So, CIG Theory is now expanded to suggest that the spatial eqivalency of matter retains the original information; this I believe is highly desireable.
Peter, I still owe you a revised explanation of Lipp's Law of Proportionality (weeks become months become years).
I know nothing of quantum computing, I can barely get by using my fingers to count, often getting confused with how to interpret the information between them.
Can someone write a paper on CIG Theory and take up the cause in a serious and well defined re-interpretation. And how about my balloon question?
I want my equation! Rate x Time does not equal Distance in an expanding Universe. It only gets us from A to B while B is now C!
THX for putting up with me
