I believe that the basic point that Mike is referring to here, is that
perceiving the dispositional relations of the blocks is a different means
of confirmation to taking the original arrangement and rotating it.
The analog form fulfilled the task to perceive the structure (to, at least,
the precision required for the test) "from the inside". Whereas rotation
takes a form "from the outside" and manipulates this structure.
As we've already discussed to apprehend from the inside is comprehend more
Going back to the other contention, your assertion that analog and digital
belong to a different frame is wrong. The only possible truth of the
assertion is that they have nothing to do with your frame.
To abstract is to measure. To measure is to compare. Comparison is
digital. The concrete material world, however, forms an indivisible whole,
it is analog.
On a basic point of principle, it is absolutely imperative to creative
thinking that everything can be related. To assert that something is not
relevant is to prevent such creative thinking, which is exactly the kind of
thinking, for instance, that Mike is offering up. What would be the point
in merely providing answers? I hope you agree.
