He does something weird with computers, electricity and maybe death rays.
The Babylonian computers were not only aware that Venus returns in almost exactly eight years to a given starting-point in the sky, but they had established similar periodic relations in 4 6, 59, 79 and 83 years severally for Mercury, Saturn, Mars and Jupiter.
Thus in connexion with the subject a genus of workers became possible who may be styled " ur-computers or circle-squarers " - a name which, if it connotes anything uncomplimentary, does so because of the almost entirely fruitless character of their labours.
But I do think we will see an end to any effective constraints relating to computers' ability to process data and transfer information.
We don't need our computers to be infinitely fast, just a whole lot faster than they are today.
