I don't know if ya'll have heard much about quantum computers yet, but they seem like incredible ideas.  What makes them different from digital computers is that quantum logic gates operate by the spin of electrons, which can spin +, -, or both directions at the same time.  Because of all these options, this will supposedly bring about incredibly powerful processing, smaller and more efficient than any supercomputer of today's standards.  What do you guys think about it?  When, if ever, would you predict these computers to be marketable, and how would we write code for them?  And are those incredibly powerful processing speeds useful?   
I know that at CalTech they have made some leaps in quantum computing. http://www.caltech.edu/content/quantum-entanglement-and-quantum-computing. It sounds pretty interesting to me.

That's awesome.  Thanks for giving me some of that info.  What I love about it is how small these computers could be...  To me, its inevitable that quantum computing will eventually replace our current digital computers; they have already made 8 qubit quantum processors. 

What I would absolutely love to do is get a degree that studies quantum computing specifically, but its still too early to be separate from theoretical physics...  So I'll probably pursue either aerospace engineering or computer science.

Cool topic!  I myself am not a game programmer, but would absolutely love to learn!  However, I am pretty fluent in C++.  I just don't know where to go from there to make games.

My programming teacher wrote a book about game programming in c++, he uses his own engine and it's written very well...amazing guy also. The book is "programming 2d games" by Charles Kelly. You can find his website that has examples and his engine. Any questions and you can message me also...I love c++

Thanks!

Looks pretty cool!  "I will sail my vessel until the river runs dry..."

Mythruna could simply be an alternative universe that the occasional Earthling is teleported into by means of a ring, a wardrobe, a storybook, or a dream.  These people could be from whatever time period you could think of, from Ancient Mesopotamia to the Modern USA.  Humans would not be native inhabitants of Mythruna, but other species, including dwarves, elves, catpeople, etc., will be native.  Because so many different cultures intermingle in Mythruna, there will be vast varieties of architecture, transportation, and culture in general.  Time will not be consistent with Earth time in Mythruna.  Maybe even inversely proportional.  So in the distant future in Earth Time, Mythruna will be forming.  But at the time of the Earth's formation will be Mythruna's destruction.  Maybe Mythruna, as an alternate universe to that of ours, is almost like a mirror; everything backwards on the time spectrum.  But idk.

Oh yeah, and organisms live a lot longer there; our life expectancy on Earth is approximately 80 years.  But on Mythruna, because it is a more suitable environment for harboring life than Earth, maybe the perfect amount of Solar Radiation, our life expectancy would be 2000 years.







Lol I am definitely a fan of C.S. Lewis, as well as Tolkien.  What kind of fantasy author would I be if I weren't inspired by their works?

Someone~ is a fan of Clive Staples Lewis.

...

And are you hypothesising that the only reason we don't live to be multi-millenial beings is an imperfect quantity of solar radiation..? As opposed to Neural decay and occasional errors in our genetic makeup?

That would be more appropriate as a mod rather than the actual game. Unless the story you described was the player written bio, that would be interesting. Smiley

Yeah, the player's bio was
How about have a choice to be a person from the 21st Century?  You could have a multitude of different characters who could genuinely equate to the players.
I would love to have this character though:

Benjamin Johanne: a 12 year old boy from a large American city, born to middle class Americans.  Loves to build and invent things as well as exploring.  The way he found himself in Mythruna was because he was exploring in the basement of his 19th century apartment building to find the portal, which could be a ring or a wardrobe or a storybook. 

I will definitely come up with some other characters, but people from the real world somehow being teleported to the land of Mythruna would be excellent.

Yes, its going to be a player bio.  And there would be multiple player bios as a choice for the player, all hailing from the real world.  Maybe even from different time periods throughout the world, somehow vanishing from the annals of history, similar to that of Henry Hudson.  That would explain the variety of cultures in Mythruna.  From airships to pirate ships to castles to futuristic buildings.  The non-human species, however, would be natives to Mythruna.  I'll come up with some more bios over the next few weeks.

Mythruna should be a fantasy world similar to that of Narnia or Middle Earth.
