The electronics is just using a binary counting system. Binary means there are two. So two numbers bedore you get to the next row. In our regular system (Arab) we've got ten. So 01, 02 ... 09 and then we move to 11 and start over. I remember translating form one system to another in high school. Quite a pain in the ass. At that point my parents probably saw me as a future ingeneer or sth.. I want to become a fashion designer at the moment so there is some construction after all.. A binary scale is when there are two categories which exclude each other. And everything falls in one of those. Gender was traditionally perceived as a binary division: you are either male or female- nothing in between or outside this. But not everyone can find themselves as one of those. Nin binary = not one of the two. Linguistically it comes from latin prefixes pointing at number. Bi = there are two. You've got binary systems, bilingual people, bisexuals, bicycles, binoculars... But Wells was writing about tripods.
 

Quantum computing is not limited to just 0 and 1, so maybe gender could be a seen as a quantum superposition of the two 'traditional' states; that way you could have any combination you wished and indeed have multiple states existing at exactly the same time  Roll Eyes. Actually, that might explain my perpetual quantum fuzziness...

Yours,
Miranda.

But a quantum computation model also assumes that you can have more than one gender state at a time. And also that of you as a quantum system, can change gender spontaneously depending on whether you are being observed...  And don't get me started on "gender wave function collapse"  Grin

Welcome to the forum Brad! I'm glad to see that one of out Floridian Steampunks is alright after Hurricane Irma. Hopefully the storm did not discombobulate your life too much.

Ladies and gentlemen of the Arena, after an eternity away, I have returned.

Jack of Blades Xenos is back.

Been 2 years since I was last here. In that time, the man you once knew died, and has risen from the ashes of his funeral pyre.

I've had a go of it, mates. Most of my troubles I brought on myself, to be certain.

I can't say I'm back to stay. Nor can I say I'm even good company. But I am alive, for them what care. I'm DIAGNOSED crazy now, and borderline institutionalized. But I AM alive.

Them what weren't here back in the day, I'm Xenos Markus O'Sullivan. You can call me Xenos, Sully, or X. I am not a maker. I consume. I do not create. I destroy. I am the one your mother warned you about. I'm the guy who's been there, done that, and will tell you it is NOT worth it.

I'm dark.  

I am the Burned Man.

But I'm alive. And I'm trying my damnedest to right the wrongs I've done. I've done a lot of wrong, though.

So yeah.  My energy is spent at last and all my armor is destroyed. I have used up all my weapons, and I'm helpless and bereaved. Did I hear you say that this is victory?

Don't let these shakes go on, it's time we had a break from it. Send me to the rear! Where the Tides of Madness swell, and men sliding into Hell...

Oh please don't let these shakes go on...

Welcome back, Xenos!  Life leaves us all a bit weathered but wiser, I guess.  Cool to see you here again!

This is a silly question, but Banfili and Xenos, where did you get your avatars? They look like they were made at the same place (and tbh I'm super jealous)

Gaia Online, many years ago. They had a site you could make the avatar without joining, but that's long gone.

Same place, I think. But there are some sites out there that will still let you do something yourself. I made a couple of different ones and stored them away. Some days I look at them & think I'll change, but always come back to the same one!
