Fun Fact: Did you know there are three free, public access quantum computers in America?
The first app I’ve ever downloaded that harnesses the power of these prodigious machines is called Randonautica. The app uses IBM’s quantum computers to generate a random location near you. It gets kinda wild from there.
The talk at the office watering hole is that the app “reads your mind” and sends you to a location related to whatever your intention was when you hit Go. There are hundreds of unexplained coincidences happening on this thing all over the world. They say the app causes “glitches in the matrix.”
The law of attraction meets GPS
These are some of the stories
Videos for these stories are included at the end of this article 👇:
#1. A guy whose intention was “surprise” was taken to a location where he saw a hang glider come flying out of the sky right in front of him.
#2. A couple whose intention was “something out of place” was taken to a house with a freaky garden gnome placed on the porch
#3. A guy whose intention was “God” was taken to a plaque that said “Mediante Dio” or “Through God.”
Randonautica has a dark side though.
It initially went viral on TikTok after some young users posted a video arriving at a site with human remains in a suitcase. This was not an isolated incident. Other videos can be seen bringing people to what could be seen as sites of cult sacrifices and other … unusual events. The app calls them “anomalies.”
Is It Dangerous?
The Randonautica team is composed of about 9 individuals. The two developers on their team receive anonymous GPS information from your phone that is neither linked to any sensitive information nor is it stored anywhere.
The locations are not manipulated by anybody, so there is no danger of lurkers in the shadows. However, it is strongly recommended that “Randonauts” follow the buddy system.
As a digital nomad living in Bogota, my own experience with Randonautica took me deep within a favela. And yes, we did experience an anomaly. No, we did not get mugged.
How It Works | Mind-Machine Interface (MMI)
In physics, the “Observer Effect” refers to the theory that observing an object or event alters it. They mention it all the time on Big Bang Theory and other shows.
Randonauting is a particularly adventurous example of this theory within emerging technology.
The strangest version of the “Observer Effect” happens in quantum mechanics. An experiment done in 1998 by the Weizmann institute showed that electrons passing through openings can behave as particles AND waves when not observed, but when a researcher is conscious of their existence and activity, they can ONLY behave as particles.
Today, there are many applied cases of Mind-Machine Interface including Musk’s infamous Neuralink and even mind-controlled drones.
To me, Randonautica is an example of society itself acting as the researcher, in the same way that ASMR became a scientifically validated idea as a direct result of thousands of videos on YouTube that demonstrated its existence and “put it under the microscope”.
Did you know there are three free, public access quantum computers in America? The internet has become the ultimate tool for research. Social experiments like Randonautica can be started by anybody with drive and curiosity
Whether we like it or not, our minds are powerful engines fueled by mysterious juice.
Do We Actually Live in a Simulation Though? WTF. How Real is This?
Do you remember watching sci-fi as a kid and wishing you could have those cool toys? There was Princess Leia’s hologram, Captain Kirk’s 3D printer, and The Jetsons’ flying car … Notice anything funny about these three “impossible technologies?”
They’ve all been invented in the last ten years. Literally all of them.
So is it possible for an app to change its output based on the intentions of the user? If there is one thing we should learn from the 21st century thus far it’s that anything is possible.
There are about 20 stories of strange coincidences being posted online every day on the Randonautica Reddit community and my own belief is that they can’t all be lying. Whether you believe these accounts or not comes down to your personal philosophy.
I repeat: if there is a single thing we should learn from the 21st century thus far it’s that anything is possible.
Would you dare to try the app? … Or is it all rubbish?
