270 – It’s Computers All The Way Down

I had a thought as I was working today …

It was about recursion …

Maybe I’ve already posted once before on this subject. I can’t recall now.

Recursion can be a complicated thing to wrap your mind around. I think that is why it’s so fascinating to so many people. It’s certainly one of the reasons I like it.

In the ancient world, they described the world in terms of a recursive set of turtles, each resting on top of the one before it. All of them holding the world up.

It’s turtles all the way down …

Someone said that.

I say, it’s computers all the way the down.

Especially lately … I’m a little bit stuck in my work these days. It’s both exhilarating and exhausting sometimes.
