"The track is named after René Descartes and his work La Géométrie where he describes The Rule of Signs, a technique for determining the number of positive or negative real roots of a polynomial. Beyond the fact the computer is a machine that performs arithmetic instruction, Descartes' theory has nothing to do with the music."
