Well absolutely. In my own mind, I'm looking for times when I go binary. Going binary is not quite the same as going postal, but when I become binary due not to the world but to the limitations of language

when I become binary in a richly textured and wildly random universe

when I become binary because Western culture's holy books begin with a separation of light and darkness, heavens and earth, and a culture of separation...

I know there's been a disturbance in the force.

I've been thinking for some time of writing a screed called: How Do You Know When You've Gone Binary and When is It Okay or even a Good Idea?

Binary thinking does wondrous things in science, but also is one cause of genocide.
