THE CLOCKWORK COPY MECHANISM

Or How To Read And Write Information Using Mechanical Means

the most common operation in a computer is copying information from one place to another
the highway on which data is moved around is called the data bus

this disk, at the center of the machine, is one of the data bus's disks
a single disk represents one single bit of information
it can be either true
or false

the data bus must be able to communicate with several other modules.

the arithmetic and logic unit
the input and output
the memory
the program counter

and of course
the control unit

a disk belonging to such a module
just like the data bus's disk
can be either true
or false

for the data bus to read information from any other module
a mechanism is needed
and a source of power

once the mechanism is set in motion
the information is copied from one disk
to the other
