Coming together

Some weird synchronicity

Looking into circuit theory lately.  From a restless night of
meandering ended up at John Baez' talks about network theory.

Forth and dup/swap/drop in John's diagrams[1] at around 14:00

Got a little jolt after seeing the word 'Fourth' on the slide.

Then it goes on explaining the "xor trick" for swapping two variables,
only using negation instead of xor.

Then it gets weird: bends as relations?
How would that work in Forth?

And how do classical mechanics and nonlinear circuit theory relate?
