Standard one-way quantum computers (1WQC) combine time symmetric unitary evolution, with asymmetric treatment of boundaries: state preparation allows to enforce chosen initial state, however, for the final state measurement chooses a random value instead. As e.g. pull/push, negative/positive pressure, stimulated emission/absorption causing deexcitation/excitation are CPT analogs, and one can be used for state preparation, there should also exist its CPT analog, referred here as CPT(state preparation) - allowing for additional chosen enforcement of the final state, its more active treatment than measurement. It should act similarly to postselection, but through applied physical constraints (instead of running multiple times). Like pumped to |1> prepared state vs its "unpumped" <0| CPT analog, hopefully allowing to construct two-way quantum computers (2WQC) e.g. hydrodynamical, and hopefully photonic, with influenced both initial and final states. If possible, for example for an instance of 3-SAT problem on n variables, we could prepare ensemble of 2^n inputs with Hadamard gates, calculate 3-SAT alternatives for them, and use CPT(state preparation) to enforce outcomes of all these alternatives to '1'. This way hopefully restricting this ensemble to satisfying given 3-SAT problem, in theory allowing to attack NP problems by simultaneously pushing and pulling information through the system for better control.
