I have worked on projects involving cryptography in my past. I understand some of the basic concepts that provide the security in cryptographic systems enough to be dangerous when discussing the topic, but I never became an “expert” on the subject. I found it a difficult subject to tackle, requiring a greater level of dedication and/or level of smartness than I was capable of. Nevertheless, it is a fascinating topic. I wrote about the extent of my exposure to the topic here.
This is fascinating stuff! There is synchronization happening naturally everywhere, and a lot of it is unexpected and non-intuitive, at least for me. And there seem to be mathematical ways to characterize these synchronization processes. There could be ways to harness the power of synchronization.
