destinyland writes "Using high-speed lasers, a Berkeley research team has discovered cell-level "quantum computing" occuring during photosynthesis. (Light energy first moves through every possible path, and then retroactively "decides" which is most efficient.) "Life's very existence may be the consequence and continued operation of a quantum computer," notes a transhumanist science magazine, giving the historic context for research into high-speed non-binary calculations occuring in nature, and arguing that "Ultrafast computing, accelerated by our explorations into the new science of quantum biology,
could well be the critical technology that pushes us over the edge into the Singularity.""
