Exploring the Reality of Quantum Simulations: From Time Crystals to Wormholes

When scientists reported they had created a space-time wormhole in November last year, the world’s media were all over the story, even though they struggled to make sense of it. A journalist for the website UNILAD put it neatly when they wrote: “So, you might have to bear with us here a bit, because it’s all very complicated and new.”

According to the researchers, physicist Maria Spiropulu at the California Institute of Technology and her colleagues had used a quantum computer to simulate a wormhole, although many observers doubted its practicality. The confusion arises from the team’s claim that the simulation was equivalent to creating a real wormhole.

The assertion made by Spiropulu’s team has raised widespread skepticism and debate among physicists. The question of whether a quantum computation can truly create entities or merely simulate them remains unresolved.

Aside from the simulation of wormholes, quantum computers have also been associated with the creation of time crystals and nonabelions – particles believed to be vital for next-generation quantum computers. However, determining whether these creations are genuine or not poses a profound question that has perplexed physicists since the inception of quantum mechanics: defining true reality.

In contrast to regular computers…
