    I was reading the bit in Dance Macabre about the Holy Engineers, recently, and the God Machine apparently communicates with them using a numerical code that utilizes a variable base that follows the Fibonacci sequence. So... unary (tally marks, I guess), unary, binary, ternary, quinary, octal, tridecimal, unvegesimal, tetratrigesimal, pentapentagesimal, nonaoctogesimal, and so on. I would presume that it starts over at some point, but assuming that each number isn't huge, continuing to increase the base would stop being noticeable at some point.

    That being said, in this case I think the God Machine may have been deliberately creating a puzzle to be solved, and it seems unlikely that it uses a shifting base like that for its own operations.

    And just so I'm not entirely off topic, here are a few ideas:

    The Old Firm
    Robby (could be used to refer to the God Machine and his forces individually or collectively, like the World War II slang term "Jerry")
    The Great Toaster
    Old Gearhead Himself
    General Motors

    I was always thinking that the God-Machine was trying to patch the holes in reality that Mages caused, it appeared seemingly out of nowhere one day after all. Who says it couldn't have appeared when the Axis Mundi collapsed? It might see the Abyss as a glitch in reality, a glitch that it has to patch by any means.

    It's quantum in function, it has 0, 1, 0+1. "Off" "On" "Superposition"

    Why wouldn't it? It is all Is and Is Not. Granted, the Machine probably is conducting/processing multidimensional arrays of such in actual multiple dimensions/universes/timelines...

    I keep trying to see patterns in the code/binary...

    Oooooh, I like that one. Especially the alliteration. It works especially well for my headcanon for the GM, in which it is effectively a self-replicating pattern, like the ones in Conway's Game of Life.

    And it almost sounds like a Goram TV curse word, too!
