        How do you justify this statement?

        I would say that the burden is on you to demonstrate, or at least indicate,
what exactly isn't rich about digital logic, and it might even be useful to
help us understand how an alternative system would work in a way that can't be
modelled digitally.

        Even to ask these questions I'm stretching, as there are already at least
several programs which are self aware.
