It has been reported that Confucius said, "A picture is worth a thousand words". Unfortunately, the historian did not leave us information as to the number of bits contained in each word. However, to my meager knowledge the Chinese language is developed about a multiconcept word structure, so that the bit content of a word is higher than our own language. Yet, his comparison must still be considered a distinct understatement.
