“Why I prefer digital clocks and can no longer pretend to like analog time”
Cohen states: “Most wouldn’t admit that it’s because it requires more work, but I can. I also hate being deceived by an imprecise instrument. But my “highest” reason is because the shapes of the digital numbers morphing and conversing like a self-sustaining language are beautiful. This is a real pleasure. Why should I attempt to appreciate anything else let alone deny what comes naturally? Despite the indication of any weakness on my part, I love Digital, I love her.”
