Parenthesized by Anomaly

Long ago and near away in engineering school, we spent a lot of theoretical time on analog and digital realities. This was in the early 1970’s and while digital devices had been in use for 20 years, their implementation in networks was in its infancy. Internet access was not only not universal, it was limited to the academy and the military.

Whether your analog vision of life is a line (Western linear view) or a circle (Eastern circular view), that view translated digitally looks like this:

01001010101000101010010

or

circle of integers
Circle of Integers

I have come to believe that every digital expression is parenthetically punctuated. How can a piece of code that worked perfectly yesterday suddenly stop working today? The logical child in me says that I can find an ANSWER. The spiritual child in me accepts that anomalies occur, that not every effect can be traced to a specific cause:
