A deeper question for analog versus digital computation asks, are there things an analog computer can do that digital computing cannot do. In my experience, which is important to a formal bookkeeping framework of rules, is to track and record the history of physically recursive structures. I have found no way to track such a history in relative real time without using both forms of computing, where analog versus digital become a language of rational complements.
