The remarkable achievements of this construction are discussed below with the help of the schematic representation of Figure 24. In this figure, it will be convenient to visualize the input registers as "magnetic bulletin boards," in which identical, undestroyable magnetic tokens can be moved on the board surface. A token at a given position on the board represents a 1, while the absence of a token at that position represents a 0. The capacity of a board is the maximum number of tokens that can be placed on it. Three such registers are sent through a "black box" F, which represents the conservative-logic circuit of Figure 23, and when they reappear some of the tokens may have been moved, but none taken away or added. Let us follow this process, register by register. Figure 22.
