In a recent blog post, Google says its modpack, which you can download here, will help teach players about “quantum entanglement, superposition, and observer dependency.”

You should check this out, it's an awesome sounding mod, just the idea of a building that looks one way from one direction, and entirely different from another sounds awesome. As well as being able to quantumly entangle entire structures and transport them across the map.

Saw this a few days ago. Good thing my friend gave me a Minecraft code this summer. Maybe I'll actually play.
