Ok...just a momentary thought of boredom that I'd like to share with you. We have come a long way in communication. Or have we?

A century ago, the primary form of long distance communication was via Morse Code. A message, or "data" would look something like this:

.._ _ ...._ _ ...._ ._ .._ _ .._ _ ...._.._..._ _.._ ....

Today, in the Digital Age, a "message" or "data" looks like this:

11001100110001110010100110111000111000110010011


Dots and dash's and ones and zeroes.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

In a strange way, you have a point Matt, but I find this not exactly a topic that can generate much discussion other than someone agreeing with you or not.

It makes sense. And it does have a kinda eerie similarity.

binary thinking just comes naturally.
After all, 1, 2, many is the first counting people learn  Smile and many never progress beyond that (at least on a mental level).

I wasn't looking for a long dialogue. I was just bored, had a momentary thought, and posted it and left it that.
