That's a pretty terse statement
Authored by: Anonymous on Friday, October 05 2012 @ 03:20 PM EDT

And the only conclusion one can draw from it is that your of the opinion that a sigmoidal measurement/processing is mutually exclusive of 2 dimensional processing.

I disagree and present the following interest payment process to prove why 2 dimensional processing is not mutually exclusive of a sigmoidal curve:

    1) Use the principal to identify the interest to be calculated
    2) Calculate the interest as applied to the principal
    3) Pay the interest into the principal
    4) Repeat at step one
Where the rules applied are:
    1) A cap on the total interest paid for a time frame exists (such as $1 million in 1 year)
    2) The interest rate to pay will decrease at certain rates as the principal to calculate on increases - in other words, you pay less interest on top of both the interest and principal at larger armounts
    3) The interest will be calculated daily
Measuring that by the interest paid daily identifying the values by the whole cent and starting with a small principal could easily chart out to a sigmoidal curve where:
    initially the same interest is paid each day from one day to the next
    the interest to be paid for the next day starts to change from the previous day
    the gap between the two day period for interest paid and the total interest to pay increases with an expanding rate
    when the larger amounts of total principal are reached, the interest to be paid starts decreasing
    causing the daily interest gap to be paid between one day and the next to decrease
2 dimensional processing and sigmoidal curves are not mutually exclusive. One can hardly claim the process identified in steps 1 through 4 can not reasonably be viewed as being binary in nature. Apply the process in a step = Length, move from one step to the next = Width. Length + Width without height = 2 dimensions.
