Outline of Question & Answer
0:00 Stream starting
1:12 Stephen begins the Q&A
1:50 Hi Stephen, you have said that you doubt whether quantum computers will ever work. Why do I read so often that another quantum computer was built with so and so many qbits?
16:28 How do we know there are more than three dimensions?
20:10 What is quantum tunneling?
26:00 Why is the 3-body problem so hard to solve?
33:55 Who is your favourite Manhattan project Scientist? I was reading about Stanislaw Ulam did you ever meet him?
46:55 Have you ever considered teaching other subjects besides math? What subjects?
51:10 What do you know about Ettore Majorana?
52:37 I'd be curious to hear what your thoughts are on Music Theory and Composition. Are you familiar with Dmitri Tymoczko at Princeton? Some of his work maps Orbifolds to harmonic structures
53:10 Can you explain Hurwitz's automorphisms theorem?
53:37 Do you think that neurons work more as a mechanical system or rather on quantum level? Is computational power done by the neural network or more by the microtubules?
