I was reading about quantum system coherence today and how by pulsing a qbit kind of regularly and kind of not, the error is minimized in that qbit and its interactions with other qbits. I like this kind of liminal point between chaos and order. It’s like you need a beat but it can’t be boring.

I overheard a guy say to his girlfriend, somewhat shyly, that “ ‘the guys’ like her”. His tribe, he means. A sweet kind of welcome, I thought. Especially if it’s a reciprocated gesture. But also kind of like a test that’s been passed. That can go either way.
