For better or for worse, look at third line in second illustration on page

"Quantum bits, or cubits, can also exist in superpositions of  0 and 1, in
effect being both numbers at once. Eight cubits can represent every number
from 0 to 255 simultaneously."    (04)

And, of course, a huge number of combinations of 0, 1, and both. It is the
