Quantum Computing Attract the DEVS is a negotiable mix of some attractive ingredients. It is a spy movie that turns Russian agents against former CIA agents. It is a cautionary debate and a science fiction about a technology that may be limitless and the arrogance of big technology. As the previous director’s efforts from Garland, Annihilation, and Ex Machina, it’s also a striking aesthetic experience, a mixture of wild vehicles, elegant lines, lush nature, and exciting and disturbing soundtracks. Most important of all, it is a reflection on ancient philosophical puzzles, presented with the decoration of science. Garland cited scientists and philosophers as an inspiration for the series, so in order to unearth the mysteries of Davis, I searched for some experts whose everyday jobs deal with the dilemmas that Lily and Associates face in fiction: a professor of computer science specializing in quantum computing, and many professors of philosophy.
We may consider the current state of the universe as the influence of its past and the cause of its future. A mind that knows at every moment all the forces that move naturally and the mutual positions of the beings that constitute it, if this thought is broad enough to present data to analysis, can condense in one formula the motion of the greatest bodies of the universe and the lightest atom; for such a thought nothing could be Uncertain and the future, like the past, will be present before his eyes
There are many questions about Devs that we will not be able to answer. How high is the healthcare premium in Kenton? Distracting yourself from working in a lab that is constantly lit with golden flare pulsating? How do Devs programmers get any job done while they can watch the world’s most exciting reality TV? Devs don’t reveal all of her inner work, but by the end of episode 7, she pulled the curtain as far as possible. The main mystery of early episodes is solved – what do Devs do? – Essentially for the viewer before Lily learns everything through the example that Katie gave to the pen in Episode 6. As the series continues, spy things begin to appear casually, the characters’ motives become apparent. All that remains to be settled is a small matter of intractable puzzles that amazed philosophers of ages.
Here is what we know. Forrest (Nick Overman) is a technical genius who is obsessed with one goal: he is reunited with his dead daughter Amaya, who was killed in a car accident while her mother was driving the car and talking to Forrest on the phone. (He might have blamed himself for the accident if he believed in free will.) He does not hide the fact that he did not transmit emotionally: he names his company after that and uses her face for her logo, and if that tribute is very accurate, he installs a giant statue of her in the company’s headquarters. (As a metaphor for the way Amaya continues to appear in his life, the statue is excessively clear, but at least it looks great.) In cooperation with a team of hand-picked developers, Forrest builds a quantum computer so powerful that at the end of the episode what Penultimate, it can fully predict the future and reverse the past, allowing Devs residents to blend in with any past event in lifelike clarity. It’s the Laplace Devil becoming real, except for the fact that its realizing powers fail beyond the point where it appears that Lily is set to do something that the computer cannot predict
