Earlier today, I proposed the theory that female brains are analog and men’s brains are digital. This has some connection to the notion that “men are from Mars and women are from Venus”. The thesis is that brains of women and men acquire information and make decisions in fundamentally different ways.
This conclusion is based on my extensive six months of experience as a loving and devoted husband. The Countess suggested that I post this theory and see what other people think of it.
In a digital world, everything has to be either true or false, yes or no, on or off. There is no ambiguity permitted. In an analog world, there are an infinite number of possible results, and you will never be certain that the result you observed is correct. When provided with identical inputs, an analog system can produce different results each time which are completely unpredictable, but each result is correct.
One could make the case that perhaps the female brain is a quantum engine – meaning that it could contain any number of independent and potentially contradictory ideas at the same time, and still arrive at a decision.
Gotta go – time for dinner. Honey? Hello?
