   In the year 2017, we elaborated more on the concept of an infinite information source.  The term "infinite" implied a source with respect to which an observer's measurement capacity was continuously diminishing.  In other words, the measurement metric (t, x, y, z, h, c, q) defined for a macroscopic observer would measure less and less information with the progression of time.  This allowed us to understand the fine-structure constant.  The infinite time-axis exists only for the observer burdened with entropy.  The time-axis has no significance for the information source which exists in i-space*.  A deteriorating measurement metric probably is the correct way to explain the expanding universe, instead of a hot air balloon analogy.  The measurement of i-space is also a possible explanation for the observations made by Vera Cooper Rubin and W. Kent Ford Jr. for Andromeda Nebula.  The unification we look for, must be based on Observer(s) and their respective measurement capacities.  The actual picture of the nature can not be precisely determined, unless our biological evolution progressed further and our natural measurement metric became more sophisticated.

   Irrespective of the genetic evolution, the physical picture is likely to stay three-dimensional along with time axis.  We used the concepts of unit-point sphere
SU and Λ-sphere to explain further, how the entropy was inherent in the measurements performed in j-space.  It led to a three-dimensional physical reality with the time-axis progressing to infinity.  The three-dimensional picture was due to the topological constraints.  Therefore no matter how capable the observer was, the metric used would be of the form (t, x, y, z, h, c, q) except that the information measured would be vastly different.  The higher dimensions would be mathematical constructs in j-space, helping a macroscopic observer ObsM make better estimates.  Higher information states or corresponding objects might seem to appear or disappear, viz. ladder operators, because of the limitations posed by the measurement apparatus, not because higher dimensions could actually exist in j-space.

    In three-dimensional picture, symmetries play an important role in hiding or revealing new information states to the observer.  The important consideration is that symmetries should not be attributed to the nature or creation.  Symmetries are the fundamental attributes of the observer making the measurements.  The observers of different measurement capacities would come up with different physical pictures while measuring the same information source, due to the limitations imposed by their respective symmetries.  Consequently we discussed the possibility of infinite number of Higgs bosons each entirely different from other, in a pure j-space.  Pure j-space in essence, is an undiluted topological picture, where no common symmetries are allowed between its members.  Hence the information presented by the each member of the pure j-space, is completely unique with no overlap with others.  We refrain from using the phrase "Parallel Universe(s)", as parallelism itself implies correlations between the members, correlations which are not possible in a pure j-space.

    Quantum computing is expected to be the next disruptive technology to hit human kind.  An ideal quantum computer is essentially an universal computer capable of performing reversible computing.  We just can not make such computer based on existing silicon technology predominant in the digital computing world.  We discussed the "problem of decoherence" and various technological options available to overcome it.  While SQUID is the current flavour of the quantum computing technology, Quantum Dots look very promising provided the CQF value can be improved.  Our eventual goal for computing however, is to completely eliminate the problem of entanglement in quantum states, which causes decoherence.  To reach this goal, we will have to think about how to design a genuine topological computer.
