Re: <nettime> Galloway: 10 Theses on the Digital


This is utter BS.

Information in the brain is stored in the discrete form, most likely in 6-bit words:

http://www.ploscompbiol.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pcbi.1002421

and is processed in a very discrete manner.

Equating information processing modes with semantics/politics/philosophy is as dumb as claiming that the city of Frankfurt is the cause of a certain strain of Marxism.
