1 Serron: Wait a minute. By moving into cyberspace we now experience more subjective time, right?
1 Spanners: Right.
2 Serron: But the computer is still working at the same speed. How does this speed up installing new software?
3 Spanners: We interact with a virtual copy of the computer, which runs in the same subjective timeframe as us.
4 Serron: And this virtual copy is running on...
4 Spanners: The ship's computer.

So you know all about quantum computers, right? Quantum computers can solve problems that normal computers can't. Okay, cool. But did you know you can simulate a quantum computer on a normal computer?!
That's right, your iPhone is capable of running a virtual quantum computer! That can solve any problem, instantly! Whoa!!
 Not strictly true - quantum computers can merely solve problems that would take normal computers multiple times the lifetime of the universe to solve.
 Also not strictly true - in the sense that it's a slight exaggeration.
Would you believe, excessive hyperbole?
How about an outright lie?
