Re: <nettime> The Laying-Out (infinite abacus)

interesting... precise but unknown (unnamed). a sort of opaque system without
re-presentation? but is it? is not the problem with platonism the identity of
the bead - the purity and division of it as something separate which CAN be
added? is there still not an infinity between the beads / within the beads? is
it still not a digital rather than analog system? something which can be
precisely quantized, separated and positioned within a grid? is not an
equivalency of identity and position still inherent in such a mathematics?

(deleuze also has some discussion on ordinal and cardinal numbering systems
such as you discuss in difference and repetition. (p. 232-...))
