I have, in fact, put an oscilloscope probe on various points inside a
digital
computer and find that all the pulses look just the same.  What can be
in
the same type of pulses to differentiate code from data? numerical data
from text? nonsense text from impeccable prose?

Perhaps there is some new, mysterious, and unknown phenomenon going
on behind the scences in my machine even as I type this!
