First of all, I would like to excuse myself and say that my English is far from being perfect.
Another thing is that I am not a mathematician or a physicist, I just have 4 years of a course of electrical engineering made.
In my modest opinion, I guess Humans have the urge to explain the world, and how simple would be if could be described by ones and zeros. And more than that if that would be considered true.
I would like to start to share some concepts first.
There's one thing called Boolean Algebra:
This means that 0 and 1 could be assumed as False and True.
There's also a concept about the most elementary chip called «not».
This means that 0 and 1 are an attribution of a value by the man from a determined voltage.
I started wondering about life in a book called "letter to the future" from Vergilio Ferreira author, take some years ago.
And, I wondered. The Human thought (at least in science, that makes all have cars, planes and lighted houses) is based on axioms.
Based on an answer of true or false.
I also considered that most of the things that we say and do can have this attribution. With the variant wrong or right.
( I might wonder if our basic thoughts can be described by 0 and 1).
Even though there's a hidden value called not define between the two voltage attributions.
This is a value that causes problems. It exists but it's like the exception that confirms the rule.
You know, to me seeing a world described as a "matrix" code doesn't make me feel afraid. I would be more frightened if I couldn't have a description from the world in a math pattern.
(With Boolean Algebra we can have an Idea from how we can program a logic "situation".
So, saying that we can describe one thing by one and zeros we are not saying that literally, that there are just one and zeros.
As also, when Democrito had said that an atom is the smallest particle that exists in the world he didn't say that we were the only one atom.
And even more, saying that an electron is smaller doesn't make him completely wrong. And in the end, Mendeleev completely an idea that started "here".)
Saying that the world is a binary or decimal it doesn't make any difference. We use binary but all the numbers can be converted in any other base number.
Most of the people, when are making a program in a computer, don't use binary code, they use 16 base code (Hexadecimal) that is much more understandable even though the meaning is the same.
Saying that a number (a constant) divided by zero have not a defined value. Depends, in Ampop answer, we can say when it goes to Vcc we already might know that we went to an "infinite" value.
To me, we are already controlling "the light" (electricity), using computers. Cars using chips, planes that flight in autopilot, fabrics with robot hands, intelligent houses and so on. And, all of this in a base of ones and zeros.
I thought that people may be were doing all wrong, trying to make neural networks instead of making a description (that also do) from the world with programming resources.
This means if we would join Monge Geometry to describe a vision in a camera in the data of a Ram memory that are both 2Dimenson, maybe we could achieve much better results than trying to adapt a numeric language instead into a biologic shape.
I also know that Schrodinger had given a completely different idea from atoms that fortunately math can describe them in probabilities.
It's not my territory. But I would say that for a big mass the probabilities turn into what the world is: a certain object (concrete, there, and not anywhere).
Anyway, I could easily understand a world, showed by True or False; Wrong or Right; Open or Close; Off and On, ...
And I would much more relaxed that saying is nearly closed. (Is that open or close?)
I don't know what is the exactly Idea of this site or forum.
It's not so scientific I could saw.
Somehow, I was just wanting to improve my English. But in a coincidence, I found a really interesting subject that I couldn't post anything there because it seems that we just can have two people quarreling, to achieve points.
So, here it goes my thoughts to this, and I am much welcome from comments.
«In mathematics and mathematical logic, Boolean algebra is the branch of algebra in which the values of the variables are the truth values true and false, usually denoted 1 and 0 respectively»
[Wikipedia source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boolean_algebra . Another site for Boolean Algebra is https://en.wikichip.org/wiki/boolean_algebra ].
And here, we can see the voltage is given (conceptually) for the 0 and also for the 1.
I couldn't find the chart that I want but there's a table on this
site. Here on this page, we can see the different voltage attribution.
