Re: Does the universe exist outside our perception of it?

a precision negative zero will be represented by a bit pattern as 0x80000000
and a positive is represented as 0x00000000, a double negative zero is
represented as 0.8000000000000000 where as a double positive zero is
represented as 0x0000000000000000. so therefore both are totally different
and finite in thier own particular way. something i learned in berkely,
binary floating point arithmetic. spiritrising
