Summary

One must bring in some basic notions of quantum theory if one wants to reduce de- and reconstruction to quantum physics. The key mathematical fact is that in quantum theory each particle in many-particle state corresponds to a tensor factor of state space of the entire system. This notion is very difficult to explain without actually having a lecture series about quantum theory and I prove in the following that this is indeed the case. 
1.	The space of quantum states of system is the basic notion: technically it is known as Hilbert space, which can have finite or even infinite dimension and also infinite dimension (and this in many senses!). 
The basic idea is that one can build bigger Hilbert spaces as their tensor products. If you have Hilbert spaces of dimensions n1 and n2, the tensor product has dimension n1× n2. This is algebraically like multiplying numbers and one can indeed identify prime Hilbert spaces as those with prime dimension. Also direct sums of Hilbert spaces are possible. 
Hilbert spaces represent physical systems: say electron and proton. To describe a world consisting of proton and electron one forms the tensor product of electron and proton Hilbert spaces. This is somewhat like playing with legos. 
I was cheating a little bit. Life is not quite so simple. One can also form bound states of two systems - say hydrogen atom from proton and electron, and the bound states of hydrogen atom represent only a sub-space of the tensor product. Connes tensor product is more exotic example: only certain kind of entangled states in tensor product for which the composites are strongly correlated are allowed. As a matter of fact, also the gluing the legos together creates strong correlations between them so that it serves as a good analogy for Connes tensor product and tensor product assignable to bound states.

    Saber-toothed tigers were arguably the most fabled of all the Ice Age creatures. The fearsome beast has earned itself quite the reputation, and it has been referenced to, appeared in, and inspired unique characters in endless books, films, comics, and other pop culture mediums. For example, Marvel's Victor Creed, otherwise known as “Sabretooth,” is most known as Wolverine's nemesis, and he’s depicted as a hulking, vigorously robust menace in a red and orange-gold jumpsuit with a hunched back, a shock of wild blond hair, tiger-like claws, and frightening fangs. As that indicates, the prehistoric creature is often portrayed as impossibly cunning, unfeeling villains. Even in films geared towards children, such as the first of the Ice Age animations, the saber-toothed tigers, excluding Diego, are depicted as vicious and vindictive, lawless fiends whose sights are set on a Neanderthal toddler. 
    The name and reputation of the ruthless saber-toothed tiger, as enduring as it is chilling, overshadows those of its contemporaries, and the fanged feline remains a household name and one of the foremost symbols of the Ice Age to this very day. So, what is it about the Smilodon that has captured – and continues to capture – the fears, morbid curiosities, hearts, minds, and imaginations of Holocene humans after all this time? And exactly how accurate is the general public's perception and understanding of the saber-toothed tiger?

    Effective Altruism - How Can We...

    This book is part introduction to, part reflective examination of, the idea and ideal of effective altruism. Its aim is to examine the core question of effective altruism: how can we best help others? A question that in turn forces us to contemplate what helping others, effectively or otherwise, really entails. Here the book argues that the greatest help we can provide is to reduce extreme suffering for all sentient beings, and then goes on to provide some suggestions for how this might best be done. 
     
    "This book provides an accessible introduction to important ideas that anyone interested in changing the world for the better should seriously consider. It explains some crucial issues often overlooked in the effective altruist literature, and examines others from a fresh perspective. It does a great job at rethinking several common assumptions, and points at biases that can make it hard to think clearly about which causes might be most worth pursuing. It can thus be a very useful tool for those who want to make a big difference." 
    Oscar Horta, professor of moral philosophy at University of Santiago de Compostela, co-founder of Animal Ethics, author of Un paso adelante en defensa de los animales. 
     
    "Magnus Vinding's inquiring mind leaves few stones unturned as he explores key issues and ideas related to ethics and consciousness. What starts off as a good overview of effective altruism and the concepts needed to apply it better, progresses into a deeper exploration of the basis for the underlying values and the extraordinary importance of prioritising the prevention of intense suffering of all sentient beings. A must-read for any current or aspiring effective altruist, and for social activists in general." 
    Jonathan Leighton, founder of the Organisation for the Prevention of Intense Suffering, author of The Battle for Compassion: Ethics in an Apathetic Universe. 
     
    "Brilliant. A clear, fair-minded and authoritative survey of Effective Altruism. Magnus Vinding makes a powerful case for suffering-focused ethics. How can each of us act most effectively to help all sentient beings? Highly recommended." 
    David Pearce, co-founder of the World Transhumanist Association / Humanity+, author of The Hedonistic Imperative and Can Biotechnology Abolish Suffering? 
     
    "Magnus Vinding's new book is a compelling and accessible guide to the rationale of Effective Altruism. It empowers readers to comprehend the unique opportunity we have to effectively help others with our limited resources. The author encourages us to expand our moral circle to include all present and future non-human sentient beings in our altruistic endeavors. The final chapters also provide a very helpful introduction to "s-risks" and suffering-focused ethics to those less familiar with these subjects." 
    Lara André, researcher at Animal Ethics and at the Centre for Ethics, Politics and Society of the University of Minho. 
     
    "There has never been a better moment in time to jump into the Effective Altruism movement or deepen your involvement. And in this journey, Vinding's book will be of invaluable aid. It is a gold mine of insights and provocative ideas for aspiring and seasoned Effective Altruists alike. I've been involved in Effective Altruism for years, but Vinding's book taught me a ton and challenged my assumptions. This book will help you be, in Vinding's words, "the light that brightens the darkness of the world." Good luck!"

    With Evolutionary Psychology I and II, Allen D. MacNeill of Cornell University led a thought-provoking series of lectures on why people do the things they do. In Evolutionary Biology I, MacNeill addresses a different side of the coin by examining the biological component, from Charles Darwin’s and Gregor Mendel’s “dangerous ideas” to contemporary thought leaders and the forming of the modern synthesis of this vital field of study.
