    Every one knows a computer runs on 1s and 0s, on true and false, On or off

    But how does this relate to algorithms?

    provide an example

    There are no paradoxes in relativity, just people's misunderstandings of it.

    Anything can be communicated by having a unique series of gestures, as long as the receiver knows what each series of gesture meant; This was taken care by making a 'protocol', the receiver is made to know what each series meant what by defining the protocol. This was done by Adam: As he lifted his hand and went to eat, did this thrice and thus the protocol was set: "Lifting Hand = Eat"

    The same is with computer.
    Lifting the hand is like '1' and not lifting is like '0'.
    This is done by using electrical pulses: Whenever an electrical pulse(of small voltage) is sent(for a duration of about micro/nano seconds) it is considered as '1' and no signal(no voltage or o Volt) is considered as '0' by the computer. The computer(EVE) reads these series of 1's or 0's, compares them with the protocols already defined(by us, like the Adam) and then understands what we are trying to say to computer.Anything can be communicated by having a unique series of gestures, as long as the receiver knows what each series of gesture meant; This was taken care by making a 'protocol', the receiver is made to know what each series meant what by defining the protocol.

    And there lies the difficulty.

    Are you in the habit of simply making stuff up?

    Not. Even. Close.
