They melt as they course through what one might call a ‘pin ball machine’ system of a typical robot. There was a time when I saw data as products on a conveyor belt. Because the products looked round and white, they reminded me of ellipses in the English language. Catching up to date, currently in fiction I’ve been writing about robotic technology. In programming, these marbles will represent data and when product after product or data after data are flowing through, in one direction, in order to change directions, you might use a pointer.
It’s easy enough to increment or decrement and go from one data product to another, but when you have to change directions amidst the hard drive mapping, you might use a pointer to point to a different address Object-Oriented Graphics I once had a wise computer programming college. Melting rock formations is the basis for what will fuel robots in my science fiction stories. After these rock and stone formations have melted down, they are re-formed into swirly mini balls that look like marbles.
