Default Nanotech Produces Bizarre "Flat" Atom, Hailed as Quantum Computing Breakthrough

Imagine a tiny arsenic atom embedded in a tiny strip of silicon atoms. An electric current is applied. Something strange arises on the surface -- an exotic molecule. On one end is the spherical submerged arsenic atom; on the other end is an "artificial" flat atom, seemingly 2D, created as an artifact. The pair form an exotic molecule, which has a shared electron, which can be manipulated to be at either end, or in an intermediate quantum state.

Thus arose one of the most confusing, most promising, and strangest breakthroughs in the newly formed field of quantum computing.
