It has sometimes been said that we find nowhere in nature an analogue of the difference between happens and is, on the one hand, and ought, on the other hand.— Wolfgang Kohler
Thrilling Analogue quotations

Patience is the analogue of God's serenity.
In many cases a dull proof can be supplemented by a geometric analogue so simple and beautiful that the truth of a theorem is almost seen at a glance.

There are something like 18 billion cells in the brain alone.
There are no two brains alike; there are no two hands alike; there are no two human beings alike. You can take your instructions and your guidance from others, but you must find your own path.
Digital technology, you see, is not the villain here.
It simply offers another dimension. I'm not sure if it's a farther remove from reality than analogue. I think if we can speak of reality, if reality and representation can be spoken of in the same sentence, if reality even exists any more, digital is simply another way of encoding that reality.
The rhythms of nature - the sounds of wind and water, the sounds of birds and insects - must inevitably find their analogues in music.

To many writers and thinkers, though not to all, another text is, or can be, the most naked and charged of life-forces ... The concept of allusion or analogue is totally inadequate. To Dante these other texts are the organic context of identity. They are as directly about life as life is about them.
The peculiar interest of magic squares and all lusus numerorum in general lies in the fact that they possess the charm of mystery.

We must rebuild organic communities, where people can come together and have analogue conversations and share stories, art, music and emotions.
Analogue dollars for digital pennies.

In a broader sense, the rhythms of nature, large and small - the sounds of wind and water, the sounds of birds and insects - must inevitably find their analogues in music.
Ants offer special advantages for some important kinds of basic biological research. The colony is a superorganism. It can be analyzed as a coherent unit and compared with the organism in the design of experiments, with the individuals treated as the rough analogues of cells.
I think an analogue synth is an extension of the natural world.
You all know that each title in the Chronicles has a chess theme;
that's partly because of the overall design of the Chronicles themselves - the game of chess as an analogue of the game of life.
Being a DJ is so easy. I can put headphones in this pocket, USB sticks in the other and that's it - I'm a DJ. But when I do the live show I'm bringing all this fragile analogue synthesizer equipment and dealing with three-hour sound checks and all that.
What I love about analogue is it really forces you to go for a performance.
I hear these young bands play perfect and they've been manipulated so much that there's not much personality to them. It's taken away some of the rawness and immediacy you get from a human performance.
I love analogue tape and I love digital, they both have pluses and minuses and I don't really feel like I have to use one or the other. I love digital because it's really great for songwriting because you can just cut and move choruses around and pull chunks of songs. It's really easy to hear quickly "Oh, maybe the arrangement should be like this."
If we look at everybody's darling, China, there is an analogue called Taiwan that is inhabited by the Chinese as well. But the standard of living and of innovation of the Taiwanese economy cannot be compared with the Chinese growth rate.

And it was the early days of using collage and sound in a digital way. MTV, a couple of years later would be that way.
A lot of the people that I play with are electronic-based, so there isn't a direct physical analogue between what they're doing and the sound you're hearing.
Vinyl's just a fun endgame step. I work with analogue signal chains too, but the mp3 is the way I listen to music.

All human affairs follow nature's great analogue, the growth of vegetation.
There are three periods of growth in every plant. The first, and slowest, is the invisible growth by the root; the second and much accelerated is the visible growth by the stem; but when root and stem have gathered their forces, there comes the third period, in which the plant quickly flashes into blossom and rushes into fruit.
Technology is usually there to let some process go on hidden in the background.
For us on 'MythBusters,' we're always trying to make the process apparent. So, we have learned to try and never rely on a technological solution when an analogue one is in front of us.
The photograph contains and constrains within its own boundaries, excluding all else, a microcosmic analogue of the framing of space which is knowledge. As such it becomes a metaphor of power, having the ability to appropriate and decontextualize time and space and those who exist within it.
