If you can do logic gates in your head, please check to confirm you aren't a replicant. Thank you.



Can anyone check whether the description and the diagram match, and whether they actually do subtraction?

Nah, it's just techno-babble. For example, "two-thirds adder" is just a joke on half-adders and full-adders, and a NOT-NAND isn't a real gate (it's technically an AND, I guess?). The diagram is also full of pseudo-gates, most of the gates that should take 2 inputs (if they were real) only have 1 path leading in, and many of the paths are nonsensical or converge without logic gates to combine them.

Well don't I feel silly now. I guess this is the level of non-commitment I should expect from Zach.
