The Micro Processor Citta
The Micro Processor Citta. Currently CPUs run at Ghz speeds. This means they can do an opperation in a billionth of a second, or a billion operations in one second. If this passes for multi tasking, how much more-so for the very much faster Citta; which, also, can only do one thing at a time.
On a Computer you can watch a full length feature film: whereas the Citta gives us the entire Cosmos as an analog display. Thus the Citta's _Annica_ characteristc compares well with the M/P's digital nature for purposes of comparison.
So that the assumed analog nature of the Cosmos is very limmiting. Given that a Samana can drop out of an apparently solid, or self identifying, experience with total ease, it is often useful to regard the Cosmos as _digital_ in nature.
However, for those who prefer to think of it as analog, they can still use the time honored 'sword of wisdom' concept: which is fairly straight forward if _Annica_ is well enough understood.
This is possible because _Annica_ is not quite discrete nor is it continuous, nor is it both , nor is it neather.
