I was watching a television show the other day, which had a panel of political columnists who were taking phone calls from people.
One caller had read a story in a newspaper about a radio program that was debating an issue brought up during a discussion show on television that was critiquing a magazine article.
As I mentally reconstructed this nested communications tree — magazine to TV to radio to newspaper to phone to TV — and then considered the fact that readers would now be reading about this in a newspaper, I began to understand the true meaning of recursion.
Maybe we should discuss your opinions about my opinions about their opinions over the radio some day?
And then write about it in a blog and have some newspaper talk show take it from there?
It would seem that despite its size, one would think that very little is happening in the world.
The Republicans stage a candidate debate. Fifteen nanoseconds after it concludes, the Democrats present “a most carefully thought out” rebuttal addressing what was said.
The Republicans simultaneously present their rebuttal to the rebuttal.
The arguments ensue and political commentators argue over whose argument was the most arguably convincing.
