Transcribed as:

Digital Identity is Not Equivalent to Physical Identity.

Transience

   -

   Most physical identity transactions are transient and quickly forgotten.
   -

   The internet never forgets.


Retransmission

   -

   The physical world is severely limited in its ability to transmit and
   consume data and must therefore be selective.
   -

   The internet’s entire purpose is efficient retransmission of data.


Degradation

   -

   Physical world data degrades in both quantity and quality over time and
   when it is retransmitted.
   -

   Digital information is perfectly preserved in storage and retransmission.
