from EDUPAGE, 7/6/95

A scientist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratories thinks St. Augustine of Hippo might have been onto something when he described God in terms of the Holy Trinity (circa 400 A.D.), and believes the concept might be translated to computing, in terms of multiple processing and shared work. The notion of a computer being both one thing and several things at the same time might lead the way to radically different computer designs in the future. "There may be some real substance there that one could milk out," says the scientist. (Business Week 7/10/95 p.8)
