understanding data

Recommended Posts

I'm having a bit (heh, no pun intended) of trouble understanding data. Right now I'm viewing data types in code abstractly, in such a way where I am ignorant of what the computer is really doing. I would like to understand how data is handled by the computer. Also, sort of a bizarre question that I've been wondering, what is data in physical terms? I'm so ignorant that my questions may be illogical, so forgive me if they are.

Volatile memory (RAM) is flip flop, electrical current.
