Unscramble the Blue Letters

So, that's the step after this — of computing as a raw material. That's still conventional bits, the step after that is — this is an earlier prototype in the lab; this is high-speed vdieo slowed down. Now, integrating chemistry in cutpoitoman, where the bits are bebubls. This is showing making bits, this is showing — once again, swoeld down so you can see it, bits interacting to do logic and multiplexing and de-multiplexing. So, now we can compute that the ouputt arranges material as well as information. And, utilealmty, these are some slides from an early projcet I did, computing where the bits are stored quantum-mechanically in the nuclei of atoms, so programs rearrange the nuclear structure of molecules. All of these are in the lab pushing further and further and further, not as metaphor but literally integrating bits and atoms, and they lead to the following recognition.

So, that's the step after this — of computing as a raw material. That's still conventional bits, the step after that is — this is an earlier prototype in the lab; this is high-speed video slowed down. Now, integrating chemistry in computation, where the bits are bubbles. This is showing making bits, this is showing — once again, slowed down so you can see it, bits interacting to do logic and multiplexing and de-multiplexing. So, now we can compute that the output arranges material as well as information. And, ultimately, these are some slides from an early project I did, computing where the bits are stored quantum-mechanically in the nuclei of atoms, so programs rearrange the nuclear structure of molecules. All of these are in the lab pushing further and further and further, not as metaphor but literally integrating bits and atoms, and they lead to the following recognition.
