Qubits are the quantum counterpart of the bits used in traditional computing. While traditional bits represent data as 0s or 1s, qubits are distinguished by what's known as superposition, or the ability to be both 0 and 1 at once.

Is everything in the universe made of 0s and 1s?

    Obviously not: we describe the universe is terms of 0s and 1s. – Mauro ALLEGRANZA Oct 25 '18 at 10:27
  • Superposition is not the ability to be both 0 and 1 at once, it is a sum of orthogonal states in a vector space of quantum states. So it is another state vector, just a non-classical one. – Conifold Oct 25 '18 at 18:02
  • Are you asking if qubits mean there are violations to the law of non-contradiction? – Geremia Oct 25 '18 at 20:36
