Gen 1:3 “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.”.
Did you notice as you continued to read that it wasn’t till the fourth day that the stars and sun and moon came into existence? So what light was God talking about in Gen 1:3?
Well according to John 1:1 and Heb 11:3 and 2 Peter 3:5 it is God’s Word.
God’s light is his thoughts and images.
The great combination of thoughts and images transmitted by light has been the Holy Grail that has been sought after since the first computers were connected. Obviously it was God’s idea first. 🙂
Why? Because there is nothing faster than light!
Now that the new processors spend most of their time waiting for the data to proccess, the need to get the data to them faster is crucial. The year that light enters the computer as an interface is 2011! It is this coming year that copper will begin to be replaced with a new fiber optic interface, designed by Intel Corp, which is called Light Peak!
I know what your thinking, fiber optic cable travels at 2 gigabyte so not a big deal, right? Well this design adaptation begins at 10 gigabytes and can easily go to 100 gigabytes.
Imagine downloading a blueray movie in less than 30 seconds! Imagine only one cable connecting your computer to your high definition monitor, then to your then TV, then it connects to your printer, then another computer, then…. There is no limit to the amount of connections and different data types, and the cable is 1/3 the size of aquarium air tubing.
Instead of hundreds or thousands of wires for differnet signals and data there is only one!
With existing servers and the internet how much of the cabling is copper wiring? What will this do to the internet and communications industry?
With aircraft how much of the weight is copper cabling ? What will this do to the aircraft industry?
With robotics, how much of the robot is copper wire? What will this do to the robotics industry?
Now man will bring forth his thoughts, words and images as light and the world’s change will begin.
