Gregory Bateson on Time - Dictionary of Arguments
Time/logic/computer/implication/Bateson: in the logical implication ("if..., then...") the time does not occur. It occurs, however, when the computer reads it from left to right.
Paradox/Computer/Bateson: the computer does not encounter a paradox, but only a simulation in chains of cause and effect. The computer oscillates - it does not dissolve. (> Performative paradox, communication/animal)._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
