Analogue vs digital

Réponse de Barry Diament à un partisan du digital qui essaie de le mettre en boîte depuis toujours...

Numeric representations have a place for sure. It is important to remember however, that they are abstract constructs and as such, will necessarily miss some of the reality. If this is not recognized from the start and kept in mind throughout, it is easy to get fooled into confusing the map and the territory (to borrow from Korzybski).

It would be like analyzing MRIs and CAT scans and pulse rates and pupil dialation and confusing the results with the experience of making love. ("Was it good for you dear?" "Hold on, let me check my EEG and I'll let you know.")

Best regards,

Pas mal non?
