If they put real code on screen it most likely would have been Assembly language, and that would have been even weirder.
"The System" of the electronic world connects all electronic equipment on earth everywhere, not just the Encom computer or a single network of any kind.
Apparently from the book's description, "The System" would also include every floating satellite as well... "
I agree. That's how I viewed things as well. The Programs are beings of energy, made up of energy (electrons perhaps) that exist in a microcosmic, digital dimension.
So I see no problem with Sark, being conveyed via transport (energy transference) to the light Cycles game that is the light cycle arcade game in Flynn's Arcade;
even though it just plugged into the wall with a power cable and not hooked up to ARPANet or not directly wired to be connected to Encom's main server/Computer system.
It just occurred to me; if the MCP could beam a human being into the digital world, surely he could transfer a program through a powercord. Any agree/disagree? I swear, if you say that Sark couldn't be transferred through the power cord because it was just a power cord, and yet accept that a human was beamed into the system, then your priorities are out of order (Aimed at no one in general)
I agree. Wires are basically conduits with Energy and Information flowing through them, so it's logical to say that a Program can travel them. Besides, the Data Ports/Streams in "TRON 2.0" are basically what allows things to travel from one Computer to the next.
So the MCP probably invented them and allowed Sark (and maybe other Programs) to travel to and from many diffrent Electronics.
And besides, if a Data Stream/Port did'nt open the Wires for things to travel to and from, then how else would it do that? I know doing things Wireless, but it seems like it's giving the Program(s) a 2 out of 5 chance of making it through.
I've got a different take on things. First off, the phenomenon of things occuring in the film were started in a supercomputer. The direction of the uses of these things in our lives are also what draws "users" - us. For this reason the film must use a defining representation to to produce mechanisms for the sake of technology, proof of reason, and concept.
So to relate that in today's technology the evolution would be a multitude of determinations, algorithms and engineering dynamics.
It seems anyone would make an isolated monster that awakens at the bottom of the ocean that walks into powerlines to get more powerful and evolve.. But this isn't that type of fantasy, it's man made, yes, but part of Tron is a tale of scientific knowledge between man and artificial intelligence, and an entire new ecology based plane of continuum mechanics coexisting in the same space.
I hope to see Tron legacy subjective to the ideas that make up the probablilities in quantum superposition, and similar treatments, even if it's a visual function of the film, and so on.
