PrefaceMind at Light Speed: A New Kind of Intelligence (2001)
Light is the quintessential messenger. It travels faster than anything. It weighs nothing, and
costs almost as little to make. A million rays of light carrying a thousand colors can travel along with each
other or through each other without interacting, carrying data and commands between millions of locations.
This is the parallelism of light, and it represents massive communication and computational power. With
it, machines of light can do a million things at once.
