Look if you take powers of 2 and sum the digits in them it says

1 2 4 8 7 5 1 2 4 8 7 5 1 2

The 487 is a math chip on earth. But if you subtract the low digit from the high one for the two-digit numbers -and- extend the rule -arbitrarily- for the three-and-more-digit powers of two, you can print,

1 2 4 8 5 1 2 5 1 2 5 1 2

Without saying 4 8 7 at all. Not only does it say "512", one of the first three-digit powers of 2, one digit sooner than the summing-only way, all the digits that said 487, the chip we have on earth, with ten fingers and base ten, what, hold on, in-between the 512's, the powers of 2 summing to print 487 over and over all say 512 in sequence instead or can. The rule where you subtract the low from the high digit only works on 16 32 and 64. For like 128 it's just you -could- say (8-2)-1 and get 5. You could also get 6 or 7. But for 256 you can say (2+5)-6 and get 1. You can keep printing 512 if you want one of the first powers of two you can't represent uniquely or sort of at all that way

If you just use sums of digits it goes 487512 over and over, one of the first powers of 2 you can't represent uniquely in base 10 that way, 512, which sums to 8 which you'd have already used, and the 487 a math chip on earth so

Oh no try this in other bases links all the toys

I think reality, might be a simulation
