Mathematical quantum epiphany

While out daydreaming beneath a cloudy sky I was contemplating the mathematics of gravity. It suddenly struck me that those equations which describe gravity could be restructured as the collection of binary functions (or, and, not, xor, etc.) necessary to produce that mathematical function.
Now I get how a quantum computer takes advantage of quantum equations. Every physical system which embodies or "performs" an operation described by a mathematical equation or function can be said to be running that process. Since every math function can be broken down into it's binary equivalent, the said physical process can be mapped onto that collection of binary operations which reproduce it's behaviour.
