#29 is pure BS!
The premesis of a computer is that it can only be 0 and 1 ie. either on or off ie. digital, not analog or halfa$$ed sorta something inbetween.

A lightbulb can be on or off not something inbetween. Yeah if it glows slightly it's still on as supposed to no current and thus off!

People are alive or dead there is no inbetween. Until the pilot light goes off you're still alive, so etiher on or off.

You're probably too young to remember a time before there were digital computers. That doesn't mean analog computers didn't exist or that they weren't computers. All modern general purpose computers are digital but before those came out there many special purpose analog and hybrid analog/digital computers. A quick search would show you many examples so you would have avoided showing your ignorance. Also, your example of dead or alive isn't really accurate either. Death isn't a sudden transition, rather it occurs gradually and the loss of conscious response is just one aspect of the overall dying process that occurs as your cells gradually cease to function.
