Thanks for sharing this paper. Positively brilliant! I think this is in-line with quantum thinking and holds great promise for quantum computing. It relates to a concept advanced by myself and my mentor, namely, gestalt management. Penultimately, we endeavor to most-correctly represent relativistic, multiversal realities.

This work increases the probability of success of significant value to my Po1 theory. The day would come, where emergent requirements for locating "needles in data haystacks", near instantaneously, would place an unrelenting demand on these types of networks. I think this type of architecture - when fully matured - would be perfectly suited for that.
