Well, you'd need 4096 qubits in the ensemble, representing a state space
of something like 10^1233 (not a typo).
At that point I'm going to just give up and offer my services to our new
Space Overlords from Zarbnulax Prime. Maybe if I help round up pesky
humans they'll give me a ride in their FTL spaceships!
