He has advocated the opposite was wrong (I stated it is either budimensional or tridimensional) which is equivalent to advocate it is multidimensional. In fact, I don't exactly know what he tries to state...

More accurate to say that RAM can

BS. Human interpretation is a subjective concept. I stated clearly defined argument based on knowledge of memory physical architectures not on some BS computational model.

Of course it does not. We are at physical mechanized level.

I am not an OO advocate I dont' even know about OO. I am just observing a simple elementary fact on physical level and drawing a conclusion from it. I just don't understand what makes so complex to understand...
