Hey guys, I was thinking of a new concept whereby we could square the amount of information stored in a bit. Currently, the information stored in a bit is whether the bit is on or off. To put it simply, the information has a base (remember, logarithmic base) of 2. If we could develop a mechanism whereby the base can be increased to 3 or 4, the amount of information stored can increased to more than1.584 times in the case where the base is increased to two or 2 (twice ) if the base is increased to 4. This can be accomplished by sensitizing 3(4 if possible) voltage levels instead of the two currently. Your comments are invited.
