A computer does not have the ability to solve problems which involve concepts of

continuity and

infinitesimals. It has been proven that the proper sequence of tranfers between

registers can solve any problem that has a

convergent solution, given enough

time. This means that a computer can solve any problem that has a definite solution and can be achieved in a finite number of steps.

Numerical analysis is a branch of the science of

Mathematics, which studies methods for solving or approximating solutions of problems in a finite number of steps. Most of the mathematic statements and functions of

BASIC are actually routines of this type.

Each

register is made up of

bits. One bit of information can have a status ON or OFF, thus, 1 or 0 numerically, or a YES or NO

logically. Since bits can have exactly two distinct values it is easy to see that the register can represent a number in the range from 0 to 2

^{n-1}, where

*n* is the size of the register in bits.

So, a register's value is a collection of 0's and 1's. Now we are talking about

binary arithmetic. And if any mathematic problem with a convergent solution can be solved using binary arithmetic, the computer can solve any solvable problem, and state when the problem isn't. Now, since mathematical problems are of algorithmic nature, and their solutions are also, we can conclude that any mathematical

algorithm can be constructed in

binary arithmetic and solved, or performed for algorithm's sake.

Pythagoras' theory that the world is made up and can be interpreted using mathematics probably fits in here somewhere, seeing as, if any problem can be constructed using maths, and the capabilities of the computer are getting more and more

humanlike, and already on our screens we have realistic depictions of human and material world representations, we might conclude that the material world is made up of

mathematical algorithms. The intangible, a priori,

cosmic constituent could be a form of numerical values, all processed by some huge computer to give us senses, and the

material world. Sort of like

The Matrix, except a using natural computer system that could only be labelled as

God which processes

*very* advanced mathematic algorithms.

So once again, we're led to question whether our

senses are receiving correct

information,

Descartes and his goddamn universal doubt all over again... *sob*, I don't think I can take this any more. It's just so hard to bear, I feel lost in a world which I don't understand. *whail*
