I am anything but confused. On this subject, I am very clear. But okay. I'll play. You explain it to me.
Exactly what use are you going to make of the numbers in your table above?
But be warned! I've been here before. The moment you explain a use of those numbers in your table, you will be making judgements based upon them. And the moment you do that, you are using the numbers to in some way represent the code they are derived from.
If those numbers can only be used in conjunction with the code itself, then what part do the numbers play? What purpose do they serve.
If you answer that question honestly, you'll see that nothing in my post was rhetoric. It is all based upon having been there, and done that, and seen the effects that it has.
Examine what is said, not who speaks.
Silence betokens consent.
Love the truth but pardon error.
