Below, our automata will consider two ISS that define the same signal as equivalent, even if the intervals might be split differently.
Conti's "The Mechanical Saint: Early Modern Devotion and the Language of Automation" is admirable for its attention to the ambivalent religious implications of early modern culture's preoccupation with automata: despite the Protestant condemnation of "mechanical saints" as Catholic trickery and associated condemnations of "mechanical" or rote forms of Catholic prayer and worship, Conti's reading of a 1616 sermon by Lancelot Andrewes offers surprising evidence of the positive religious connotations that at least one (admittedly high church) English Protestant could attach to automata or pneumatic machinery.
