Elisha Gray’s Telephone, Part 2
July 7th, 2025
I suppose my last entry is due some clarification from Yours Truly. About the patent; it’s for quantum technologies no. 2, quantum tunneling. I would explain it to you, but it’s too complex. I’ll give you the simple version: on a quantum scale (smaller than microscopic) some particles like neutrons are so small that rather than going around a barrier, it will pass through the obstacle instead.
Oh, and about my competitor—uhhhh. He’s annoying, to say the least. But I used to work for the guy, hard as it is to believe. Okay, I phrased that wrong. It’s not like we had some long history together. I worked with him more than for him, and it wasn’t even a real job (and yes, in case you’re wondering, of course he’s a business man. He’s the C.E.O. of an invention patent office). I came to his company to patent my quantum tunneler, he found out, and then said he wanted to come see me. He said he had the same idea a while ago; he wanted to develop it with me. I said no, and one thing led to
another. We’re now each trying to file an independent patent for the same (my) invention. It’s extremely difficult, though (did I already say that?) I’m fast, but Martin’s could be faster…
