Ok it is not the processor you have to think about its the properties of photon particles. Depending on which part of the processor observes the photon it can represent a 1, if another part needs to see a 0 then it can observe it as such simultaneously. You really need to know about present gate technologies in present processors to begin to comprehend how this is possible.
It really is difficult to simply explain it an y simpler unless you already have a grounding in how a normal electron system works, and why it does.
